I have never tested or used it but:

Access lists 700-799 should be standard MAC address acl'

Access lists 1100-1199 should be extended MAC address acl's.

so you would end up with something like:

access-list 700 permit aaaa.aaaa.aaaa

Re: MAC Filtering in Router


I've been trying to apply the mac filtering,still failed.

I created access list 700 specifying my mac of my PC.When i tried to apply in ethernet interface,it says "% Invalid access list name."

My router is 1841.

i check some docs@cisco, it says Mac filtering can be applied to G.Bit port or Sub-interface!

My purpose is to block the pcs in the Lan to connect to internet.

Re: MAC Filtering in Router

I think the MAC access-lists on routers have somwething to do with bridge-groups.

I have never tried but the think mac access-lists in routers can only be applied to interfaces configured into a bridge-group.

u can check the command

(config-if)#bridge-group input-address-list 700

Re: MAC Filtering in Router

any way, Will it serve my purpose?

I need to block the traffic by Mac address level by all the devices in the LAN side?
