it would be very useful to be able to create security policies based on mac address objects. In Zyxel firewall there is no possibility to create mac address objects like in other vendors firewall. Is this a feature you plan to implement on your firewalls as well?

    Hello @DiegoF

    as a workaround you can configure IP/MAC binding to specify a fixed IP to each MAC address.

    Hello @DiegoF

    you can configure a dedicated wireless SSID for students with an associated VLAN in a different subnet. With this configuration you can isolate the students network from the LAN and you can add security policies for them. What you think?

    That does not stop from using a switch for MAC filtering you can go from  ATP/USG  to switch to AP or you can get a AP with filtering.

    You can do this in the VPN300

    However this does not stop DHCP from getting a IP by DHCP....
