Configuring MAC Filtering for WLANs

Restrictions for MAC Filtering

  • MAC filtering cannot be configured for Guest LANs.

Information About MAC Filtering of WLANs

When you use MAC filtering for client or administrator authorization, you need to enable it at the WLAN level first. If you plan to use local MAC address filtering for any WLAN, use the commands in this section to configure MAC filtering for a WLAN.

Enabling MAC Filtering

Use these commands to enable MAC filtering on a WLAN:

  • Enable MAC filtering by entering the config wlan mac-filtering enable wlan_id command.
  • Verify that you have MAC filtering enabled for the WLAN by entering the show wlan command.

When you enable MAC filtering, only the MAC addresses that you add to the WLAN are allowed to join the WLAN. MAC addresses that have not been added are not allowed to join the WLAN.
