Edge is ATT's network.

When you say you entered the mac address, are you referring to the iPhone's mac address or your PC?

On the iPhone (settings/about/wi-fi address) is the one you need to use in your mac filter.

Also, if your connection is secured, make sure you are entering your encryption key exactly as it is for the router.

Sorry if this is common knowledge to you. It's the best I could think of at this hour of the morning.
