Wired NIC Access Restrictions

    I have a WRT54GL running DD-WRT v23 firmware. In order to make my network more secure I would like to limit wired access to the internet by MAC address. How would I go about doing this?

    I've thought of setting up access restrictions to allow the wired mac addresses but my questions is will that policy deny all other PC's with the incorrect MAC addresses?

    Is there a way to deny all except specified ones? Thanks!

    Lol. :grin: I just didn't know if it was possible because I've seen a D-Link router do it.

    XP's 802.1X is used for this purpose. I have never used it so I do not know the steps. Want to give it a shot and tell us all about it?

    [quote="techmanbluesThe original post is about denying WIRED connections based on MAC addresses, not wireless.[/quote]

    Sure :thumb:

    What I meant was that having just the same interface and functionality as the wireles MAC address stuff but for wired would be very easly to setup, compared to 802.1X.

    That said, a couple of times I have done a wrong setting in the wireless MAC stuff and have been very happy I can just just plug into the LAN to talk to my WRT again and fix my settings :rofl:
