Go to Network-wide > Monitor > Clients.

Check the boxes of the clients that you want to block.

Click on the Policy drop-down above the client list, and select Blocked.


This will immediately block the selected clients from accessing the internet. Please note that this configuration is completed on a client-by-client basis.


If you want to block all devices by default and only allow specific devices, you can create a Deny Any rule in the Layer 3 firewall. Then, you can add the MAC addresses of the devices you want to allow to your device.
