WAG54G: allow only some Pcs internet access

    I have got a WAG54G-EU with the latest firmware.

    I would like no PC, either connected via LAN or WLAN, to have access to the internet if not specially allowed on the firewall.

    Linksys DE tells me, that this is not working as I expect it and it is "by design" that I can only deny internet access for known MAC- or IP-adresses, but not allow it. But the GUI of the router allows that ...

    I set up the following:
    Policy 1: allow several MAC-addresses full internet access 24/7
    Policy 2-9: empty
    Policy 10: deny all MAC-addresses the internet access all the time

    My problem now is, that all PCs can access the internet all the time - no matter if their MAC is listed or not.

    Even if I have only one policy saying that internet access is denied for everyone 24/7, every PC has access to the internet.

    I tested this with all the firmware versions available at ftp://ftp.linksys.com for the WAG54G-EU - no luck.

    Can anyone help me with that issue?

    Best regards,

    if the firmware is broken you're pretty much hosed until linksys fixes it... could try a wired router infront of it or a wrt-54g with either stock firmware (if that works under stock, i've never tried it) or custom where you could make your own rules...
    unless someone else knows of a fix for this...

    Have this problem aswell on wag54g.

    Won't block access by ip or max addresses.

    Another firmware fault.......add it to the list !!!

    if you're really desprate you could buy an old computer and install linux or a bsd on it and use that as your gateway then you can do whatever filtering you want.
