Configuring Wireless MAC Access Lists

The access control list (ACL) controls the wireless clients that can connect to the wireless network. The ACL identifies clients by their MAC addresses and directs the device to permit or deny access for each address. The ACL settings apply globally to all basic service sets (BSSs). The following topics explains different methods to configure ACLs.

Configuring MAC Access Mode

You can configure the ACL to operate in one of the following modes:

To configure the ACL mode:

  1. In the NSM navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices. Double-click the device object to open the device configuration.
  2. In the device navigation tree, select Wireless Settings > MAC Access List, and then select the MAC Access Mode.

Configuring MAC Addresses

You can specify a maximum of 128 MAC addresses. To add an address:

  1. In the NSM navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices. Double-click the device object to open the device configuration.
  2. In the device navigation tree, select Wireless Settings > MAC Access List, and then click the Add icon to display the New MAC address dialog box. Configure the following:
