This example uses the gateway's outbound filtering feature. You can also use Internet Access Control to filter a computer based on a MAC address.
To demonstrate outbound filtering, we will show steps to configure for the following scenario:
A company has two computers connected to the U.S. Robotics Wireless MAXg ADSL Gateway. An office worker uses one of the computers while the business owner uses the other. The owner wants to keep the office worker from using the Internet. The owner has a computer that has an assigned IP address of 192.168.1.2 by the gateway. The office worker's machine has been assigned an IP address of 192.168.1.3.
Congratulations! The outgoing address filter is complete. The computer with the IP address entered in Address Filter will not be able to access the gateway's Internet port.
