    Is there any way I can set up a list of MAC address to allow access only to certian MAC's on the LAN ports. I want to block all access to wireless and wired computers unles they are in my allow list.

    They can be setup for the wireless clients but I see no way to set it up for the LAN clients.

    You could set up iptables rules to drop any packets that are not from allowed MAC addresses. That would prevent them from accessing anything the router has to offer (including internet access), but not from accessing other parts of the LAN (other connected clients). You could probably separate the LAN ports from each other using different vlans (if your WRT54 version supports it, I believe only the older ones do).
