You may always use a WiFi password to secure your internet from unauthorized access but you can also enable a mac access list to block unknown users in the network. ACL (access control list) not only gives you the power to filter wired computers, but you can also restrict internet access for specific users. In earlier posts, we have provided a user manual to setup d-link as repeater mode to boost WiFi signals. Now, this post will help you to enable mac access list to block the user to access the internet only. Blocking mac addresses only restricts internet access and the user still can access and share local networks.
