Block mac address on router

Recommended Posts

KitCh    1

Okay basically I have a Buffalo WHR-G125 router and I want to block a certain mac address. However, the option from within the router only allows blocking of wireless attempt connections, and I need to block a LAN connection (by that persons mac address). Does anyone have this router and know how to do this or know of a work around.

(It's a long story why we need to block his address)

Thanks for any help

MAC filtering is rarely useful as a security measure. Have you looked in the manual for your router? (you can probably find a copy online)

Well since its a wired device he is trying to block, I would assume its a control measure - not allow internet access, that sort of thing. As suggested RTFM

If your router does not support the feature(s) your looking for, that model does support dd-wrt. Which will provide a feature for blocking mac address from internet access, etc.

Install it or one of the other 3rd party firmwares that router supports. Openwrt would be another example, not sure if the tomato supports buffalo or not.
