WAN vs LAN Access

Unanswered Question
Sep 24th, 2010


Looking for some information on setting up some security on a buinsess class router (specifically:  RV016) to allow WAN access to only a certain IP range.   (without having to assign the workstation static IP address..)   MAC filerting of some sort comes to mind, but it doesn't look like this router can do that...which is odd in my opinion...

Any insight on how I could do this?  Or do i have to step up to enterprise class type router...



I have this problem too.

I didn´t tested the equipment, but i think its configurations are made in web interface. ( I think you can add access lists on the web gui of this router model)

You can create access lists and associate to the outbond interface (WAN interface) to only permit the subnet that is able to connect to wan and deny the rest of the hosts.

To get a easy management create vlans with DHCP pools to isolate the hosts with access from the hosts that you don´t want access to WAN, and associate the vlans in the switch ports.

In this way you don´t need host static IP addresses
