To do this, you need to enable MAC address filtering. When this is enabled, the only systems allowed to associate and pass data wirelessly will be computers or access points whose MAC addresses are in a list of addresses that you program into the gateway.

Congratulations. You are finished. You may close the gateway's Web page.
