Allow access to VLAN based on MAC filtering with wildcards possible?

Situation:

Soon everybody will receive Apple iPhone and as such want's this to connect to our wifi network.

We would like to seperate this from 'wifi pc traffic'.

So I thought about creating a new SSID where we only allow iPhones.  I was thinking of doing this by MACfiltering with wildcards (only brand Apple).

Is this possible?

Or other solutions?

- fixed username and pw: don't like that security wise and also because people will then also connect with their laptop to this ssid

- manually enter mac addresses allowed: too much work especially because we will ahve to change it every time a user get's a new device.

Thanks

Re: Allow access to VLAN based on MAC filtering with wildcards p

It is possible, setup a mac address ACL and wildcard it to only allow iphone mac addresses.  However mac addresses are sent in clear text so if you plan to do this you should setup WPA and/or some form of RADIUS authentication against AD as well.

Thanks,

I forgot to mention that we have LWAPP en WLC’s  so I'm afraid that is not possible.  Other ideas?

Thanks
