Security for my WiFi network. (MAC filter, Access to Mobile Devices)

Hello everyone.
Dear, Please your support.
I have my Wifi network.
I would like to add to my Wi-Fi network, the MACs of the users' laptops, it is possible to create that security so that only the registered MACs have access.
Also, I wish I could identify the Syst. Operations that connect and from there be able to access or deny the Wi-Fi network. (Security for mobile device connections)
I hope you can help me.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Imperia,


take a look in IPSK, there you have a unique key for every registered MAC:




Here to help

You can add MAC addresses by going to Network-wide ==> Clients ==> Add Client, you can also choose a group policy if you required to have custom firewall rules, shaping etc. 


However MAC address based restrictions are not the best thing to do as this can be easily spoofed. I would highly recommend looking in to deploying 802.1X with EAP-TLS or using Meraki MDM to manage and restrict the devices which will be using the SSID's.
