Linksys WRT54GX-v2 Router Question

November 23, 2010 at 20:35:07
Specs: Macintosh
Under the "Wireless" tab, I have my router configured so that network access is restricted by MAC address. Under the "Access Restrictions" tab, I have set up an Internet Access Policy using a MAC address from the Wireless Network Access list. Why doesn't my Internet Access Policy on my Linksys WRT54GX-v2 restrict the iPod Touch from accessing during restricted times?

That's a very good question, since it poses a security threat. I would call Linksys on that one.

I have set up an Internet Access Policy using a MAC address from the Wireless Network Access list.

What exactly does the documentation say about the "Internet Access Policy"?

Is it there to restrict LAN (internal) users connected to your WLAN from accessing the internet? Or, is it for allowing access into your router itself (management interface) or the LAN from the internet (external)?

If the latter, then it won't stop the ipod right.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
