WRVS4400N Client Filtering and AP Isolation Options Missing

Answered Question

I have a WRVS4400N with firmware v1.1.13 installed (Latest firmware for hardware versions 1.0 and 1.1).


I need to setup wireless client filtering and AP isolation.  The faqs for this router contain information regarding this.  However, my router firmware does not contain any of the options describe in the FAQs.  Are these settings only available in the v2.0 hardware?  I would hope that these settings can be made available in the 1.0 /1.1 hardware.  I'd hate to have to purchase a new router to do this.



The following was taken from the WRVS4400N FAQs (Document ID: 109207)

>Q. How do I set up wireless client filtering on the WRVS4400N?

>

>A. Complete these steps in order to enable the wireless filtering feature:

>1.Open the WRVS4400N web setup page.
>2.Click the Wireless tab.
>3.Click the Wireless Network Access sub tab.  <SUB TAB AND OPTIONS BELOW DO NOT EXIST - See Pic Below  >
>4.Select the Prevent from accessing and Permit to access buttons.
>5.Fill in the wireless MAC address that is filtered so you can control which wireless client can connect due to route.

>

>Q. What is the AP Isolation feature and how does it work?

>

>A. The AP Isolation feature isolates all wireless clients and wireless devices on your network from each other. The isolation is done at the MAC address level so >all wireless devices are able to communicate with the Router but not with each other. In order to use this function, click the Enable radio button and save the >settings. AP Isolation is disabled by default. <THERE IS NO RADIO BUTTON TO ENABLE AP ISOLATION>

That FAQ appears to be for an older version of firmware and the later firmware has the options you are looking for under different headings.


The wireless filtering is handled by going under Wireless>Wireless Connection Control. Select "enable" and then decide whether or not to control wireless connections by permiting only certain MAC addresses or denying certain MAC addresses and allowing all others. There is even a button that shows the current wireless clients connected to make it easier to determine the MAC addresses of valid clients when populating your list.


The AP Isolation is called Wireless Isolation. Go under Wireless>Wireless Security and select "enable" for Wireless Isolation. This will prevent wireless clients from communicating with one another.
