Blocking wireless mac connection

Hi all,

I was wondering, is there a way to block a wireless client thru its mac from binding with the AP without having to go there manually and switch it off? I know there is a way to only allow accepted clients thru and blocking the one I dont want, but say Im not given that option :? as not all wireless clients are on at the same time, so I want to block only one from seeing the AP.

Any suggestions are highly welcomed...

Thanks

Add the mac address to the access-list and set authenticate to "no".
You really should consider proper access-list handling. You never what random person connects and floods the network. (This would be when you need it the least).
