Hi there, sorry I did search for an hour or two and came up empty.

My Question please is the following. from time to time some people figure out the password to connect to your network that should not. looking at the DHCP table I can see which devices MAC address I would like to kick off.


is there a way to deny them to connect or get an IP from the USG210?


I would appreciate some help with this.


thanks,

Derrick

    Are these devices wired or wireless?

    What you can do is use IP /MAC Binding for the given MAC and IP to like 192.168.0.254 then make a firewall rule to block that source IP from any to any.

    thanks Peter. I thought of that, but the problem is that you are then wasting an IP address on a phone/laptop that you do not want on your network just to keep it of the network. would be nice if I could just tell it to not accept a certain MAC address
