Default 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

Default 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

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

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

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
