Block just internet access


How do i block just internet access to a local NAS.

In Advanced -> Security -> Access Control only has option to block or allow.

When i block it just blocks even LAN access but i just  want to block traffic

from or to WAN side. 

I used Asus routers and its been every easy

to block internet access and allow LAN access...

But couldnt find the same in so expensive Netgear Orbi 😞

Let me know if i'm overlooking or Its a limitation! Thanks!

Re: Block just internet access

Have you tried "Block Services" on that single IP?

(Advanced Tab->Security->Block Services.  Drop down to "Any" and put in the single IP address.)


When I set up servers (in the past, looong ago) I was able to define Firewall rules in the server to block access by IP address.  i.e. block "everything" and then allow  Do not own a NAS now, so have no idea what configuration options they have typically.

I love my Orbi.

This local NAS is?


On my ZyXel and dLink control of that sort of thing is within the NAS.


Then there is the fact that "internet access" could be one of many things.

Just another user with a set of boilerplate macros.
