Access Restrictions not working on bridged wireless

    Hello. I have setup access restrictions for a specific device using it's MAC address. This works fine when when the device connects to the main router on which this restriction is configured However, I recently added a wireless bridge access point that connects to the main router. When that restricted device connects to the wireless bridge router, it gets an IP address from the main router but is not assigned any restrictions. Why is that?

    I am using Tomato Firmware v1.28.0021 Teaman-SDHC-VLAN ND VPN

    If you want to use MAC address-based controls then you need to use WDS instead of a WET bridge.

    Thanks for the reply. Please excuse my ignorance here..

    Since my wireless traffic is on a 10.x private vlan, will that WDS bridge be able to see my 192.168.x network? (assuming my LAN Access routes are setup)

    Thanks.
