Internet Blocking (not filtering) by MAC Address

I need to be able to block sets of MAC addresses from accessing the Internet during certain times on certain days of the week. Is it possible to do this on a WNDR4500?

no... IP address only.

therefore you have to use address reservation under LAN setup of router gui and assign the IP

Thank you.

Bummer. That won't cut it. I guess this router isn't for me.

Thank you for your help- you've saved me a $200 headache.

For wireless clients go to Advanced Setup - Wireless Settings - Wireless Card Access Listing

Re: Internet Blocking (not filtering) by MAC Address

Well aware of the differences jmizoguchi. Working in telecom at several Fortune 100 companies for several years, I've had to routinely improvise in the trenches to deliver results. Sometimes you CAN put a square peg in a round hole. It's called problem solving.

I cannot find this option within Netgear Genie for the WNDR4500.

Can I reserve an IP address for each attached device and then filter them to be able to block the device(S) at will or by schedule?

I have tried to filter an IP address alone but they can change depending on which device is connected and when it connects to the router.

My older wireless router from Netgear allowed MAC address filtering - why not now?

Thanks for any help and best regards, L

Re: Internet Blocking (not filtering) by MAC Address

Just found Wireless Card Access List (Advanced, Advanced Setup, Wireless Settings, scroll to bottom for the Wireless Card Access List).

So, it seems as though I/we have to register all devices that we wish to attach to the wireless/wired network in the Access List and then remove them when we wish to block access of the device(s)?

I would love to be able to have an access/no-access(?) list where I can add a MAC address that I would like to block at will or by schedule.

Am I crazy? (Don't answer that, my wife already has).

MAC addresses are static, IP addresses are not always which leads me to my prior question...

... Can I reserve an IP address for each attached device (not incl wireless router) and then filter them to be able to block the device(S) at will or by schedule?

Thanks again and best regards, L

Re: Internet Blocking (not filtering) by MAC Address

ACL is ONLY to refuse the connection to wifi connectivity.

i will NOT block the usage of internet of any

You have to create block schedule for ANY devices (wireless or wired) that is connected to the router

Will this not block access to the internet due to the fact that it cannot access the wireless router within the home?

BOTTOM LINE: I am a parent who wishes to block my child's access to my wireless router when I see fit either by will (login to router and deny access) or by a schedule determined by me.

It seems very convoluted to go through more steps than a simple control page that allows or disallows a MAC address to connect.

What could be the reasoning behind this missing feature?
I am truly trying to understand the implications.

Thanks to anyone with insight.

Best regards, L

Re: Internet Blocking (not filtering) by MAC Address

You have change ACL every time wen you want to block

You need Schedule to block service


You need to look at parental control software or use LPC, Netgear.com/lpc

There seems to be a giant disconnect here.

As I see it, you are not addressing my specific question(s) so, please, and with all due respect, do not reply to my query any longer.

Consider this closed, please; I am taking this issue up with Netgear directly.

With warmest regards to all, L

Re: Internet Blocking (not filtering) by MAC Address

Already told you to use service block to schedule time
Or lpc which is FREE for compatible router to schedule the usage of Internet

You will get same answer with upper

Mac filter address dies not fix or every time you want 100% no connection to the wifi connection then you can not a effective way
