MAC address based network access.

Wed May 06, 2015 11:55 am

How can i make the mac address based access so that only registered mac address can connect to the LAN?

If the new mac address is there than it can not access the network.

I think that you have to create static ARP table and disable dinamicly created entries.

To disable auto entries change ARP option in interface menu to "reply-only". (Interface of your LAN)
To enable users add static entries in ARP table (MAC and Ip Address).

First add static entries to enable your PC to communicate with router.

So only static created users will be able to take IP address , but be carfulll because someone can mask his mac-address

I hope this will be helpfull for you

would this mean only users in the arp table are ablee to get an IP .. ?
makes all sense but somehow i have 17 clients connecteed via cable and/or wifi .. but only 2 do show up in arp table.

is there anything i need to change to make clients actually show ?
the only trouble with troubleshooting is that sometimes trouble SHOOTS BACK !
