Unanswered Question
Dec 15th, 2011


I have a WLC running the version 7, and I would like to know, if the combination MAC Filter + WPA2/AES/PSK is supported in a WLAN.


I have this problem too.

hi Surendra,

  Its supported, but does it work like AND or OR ? cos if you have a client which is NOT added in mac filter list but has the WPA PSK key set will be able to connect. Is this expected behaviour ? I am expecting the client should pass both mac filter check and PSK check before allowing the client to connect ?

No... It's both or none.

Yes, First it will check for the MAC Address , if MAC is not there it will drop the request.


If it finds the mac address it will check for the PSK.

If either of one fails, the request will be dropped.
