I want to block my TV from accessing internet but still allow LAN access

Hi, I have a few devices I want to block from accessing the Internet but still allow them local network access. I understand I can block specific port numbers or assign dummy DNS addresses on specific devices... all of which are decent workarounds.

 

But is it possible to just simply tell my router to block WAN access for a specific device IP/MAC address or somthing similar?

There is support material, including a manual, for the R7000 somewhere at the end of this link:

Maybe page 61 will help, Block Services from the Internet.

Just another user with a set of boilerplate macros.
