    I’ve got a problem with a simple peer to peer network I am responsible for. 11 or so machines, all XP Pro SP2. Surfboard modem supplied by the ISP to the Linksys BEFVP41 v2, to a switch. Static IPs assigned to each computer (internally). What my goal is so that if someone brings in a laptop, or any computer for that matter, and they disconnect the connection from one of our computers, they will not have internet access. I went into the setup, access restrictions, and created 2 lists (not all computers would fit on the limitation of 8 MAC address per list. I only want to give access to my 11 computers, all other MAC addresses to be blocked. I listed all computers on the 2 lists, granted internet access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to theses computers. How do I block out any others? The above did not work.
    Thanks in advance,

    I'm a little confused here, Art. Are you meaning if "any" of the computers disconnects from the internet, you want all other computers do be denied access to the internet also?

    Sorry, I was not specific enough. If someone disconnects one of the cat 5 cables from a NIC on one of the computers, and then plugs it into their laptop, I don’t want their lap top to work. Thanks.

    Alright, we're making some headway here. Now, when you say "The above did not work" are you saying that all the settings you made regarding MAC filtering and internet IP's did not work either?

    OPPS! Ok, so I need to input the MAC addresses and in the second section the correlating internal IP address? Do both? I have only filled out the MAC section.

    Yes, that might be an option "if" you can't fit all the mac addresses of the computers you want filtered into the mac address portion.

    So, if my logic is accurate, I would enter "eight" of my computers into the "mac address filtering" fields, and then filter the remaining three using the "ip address filtering" fields.

    Give that a try...
