How to block unknow clients?
« on: January 31, 2021, 12:43:25 PM »

I'm having some weird connectivity issues and, in trying to debug the, seeing clients connected to my 882 that I cannot identify.

Is there a way to block clients by MAC address?  I'm not finding anything but "parental control" blocking - is that the only option?

Are these wired or wireless devices?

You might change the SSID name and PW to something else as a test. Then begin to add one of your known wireless devices one at a time to see what shows up. I would not give out the PW to others just yet.
