Default WNDR3700 Mac Filtering for internet access

I migrated from a Linksys router to the WNDR3700. Linksys had a feature to let me schedule, by rule, which devices could access the internet based on Mac address.

Is this possible with the 3700? I am using WPA for security.

I have 2 PS3's, 1 XBOX 360, 2 IPODs, 1 Droid, 7 computers (Visa, XP & Windows), 3 gigabit switches.....

Should I endure the pain and convert everything to static IP addresses? I am currently able to select the rule and limit by time of day by Mac.

Thanks in advance

Only by IP on home end routers for Netgear

I am a netgear newbie.
I just migrated from the linksys wrt610n to the netgear wndr3700. I am pleased with the netgear results. However, blocking access by mac address is important for me also. Has this never been a netgear feature?

If you use the router DHCP address reservation feature which ties an IP to a MAC address you can effectively do the same thing, or at least very similar.

Yes, I see how to do that. However, I don't see how to create a policy A that has a schedule with it and a set of IP/MAC addresses. I only see one schedule for everything.

I want to lock out some laptops after 8pm for the night.

Choose Wireless settings under Advance

Click on the Setup Access List button

Follow the instructions on the page you just accessed.

I would also like to understand how this is done as with the Linksys/Cisco router I had I could turn off the kids internet acess at a set time on week days and have weekend rules....
