#8558 closed defect (obsolete)

Support MAC filtering in

Reported by: quiet.dragon@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


As described in:

support for MAC filtering in was discussed in one of the threads in the forum.

This patch reproduces that work, and also allows for the MAC ACL to be kept separately from /etc/config/wireless. This is useful because it allows the list to be annotated. For example:

# Joe's desktop in the basement

I used this a while back, worked great! The only problem I had was sending a sighup to hostapd to reload the mac file on the fly didn't bring back the second VAP. However, there has been a patch for ath9k to resolve this, so it should work perfect now.

You should be able to edit and send only a signal to hostapd to seemless block or allow clients without having to affect other users.
