    I have recently purchased the WRT54GS ver2 and have spent the last couple days going through the settings. I have noticed that mac address filtering seems to be a common feature for wireless connections, but what about wired connections? I currently have only a single pc wired to my router and was wondering if it were possible to use mac address filtering to accept only my computer's mac address.

    Thanks in advance!

    Ihave Ver.2 of the WRT54G and I´m using Satori4 Firmware.

    But the original Firmware also should be able to support MAC adress filtering.
    It´s in the menue : "ACCESS RESTRICTIONS" --> "EDIT LIST OF PC"(You must enable "Status"....

    ...there u get a popup where you can edit Mac Adresses.....

    or if you want to be a geek you could do iptables or something? but again i am not sure

    i think if you want the regular way of doing this just do what Sepsys suggested

    Cool, thanks Sepsys! It's kind of hidden in there with the policy management. Thanks a bunch!
