Hi John,

Are you referring to Mac Filters? If so;

Configuring and Enabling MAC Address Filters

MAC address filters allow or disallow the forwarding of unicast and multicast packets either sent from or addressed to specific MAC addresses. You can create a filter that passes traffic to all MAC addresses except those you specify, or you can create a filter that blocks traffic to all MAC addresses except those you specify. You can apply the filters you create to either or both the Ethernet and radio ports and to either or both incoming and outgoing packets.

Note: Using the CLI, you can configure up to 2,048 MAC addresses for filtering. Using the web-browser interface, however, you can configure only up to 43 MAC addresses for filtering.

From this doc;

Hope this helps!

Hi there Rob sorry for not being clear on the subject matter.

I meant how many mac addresses can the local mac address hold on the Mac Address authentication page? would I use CLI and be able to add upto the 2,048 mac addresses?

Hi John,

No worries at all :)

You can use the CLI, have a look at this good doc;

CLI Configuration Example

This example shows the CLI commands that are equivalent to the steps listed in the "Using MAC Address ACLs to Block or Allow Client Association to the Access Point" section:

AP# configure terminal

AP(config)# dot11 association access-list 777

AP(config)# end

In this example, only client devices with MAC addresses listed in access list 777 are allowed to associate to the access point. The access point blocks associations from all other MAC addresses.

For complete descriptions of the commands used in this example, consult the Cisco IOS Command Reference for Cisco Aironet Access Points and Bridges.

From this doc;

Hope this helps!
