Mac Filter Wildcards? WLC

I'm deploying several hundred handheld scanners and I dont want to create a mac filter for everyone, however that are all the same manufacturer, and that manufacturer only has one mac prefix, is there a way to just put the mac prefix in?  I'm using 5508's running 7.0.116.0.

Help files and searches turned up nothing.

Thanks.

If you have a radius server like acs 5 you can put your Mac list on the radius server and you can do mab, mac address bypass. Now I haven't don't this myself, but this will give you somewhere to look further.

Mac Filter Wildcards? WLC

MAC filtering only method of security is not secure, also mac filtering is useless since the mac addresses are visible on w.less packet capture and it can be spoofed.

Mac Filter Wildcards? WLC

My problem is the opposite. I would like to ban / disable mac address begining to a given manufacturer because:

     - my wireless clients are of the same manufacturer

     - someone is scanning repeatly during months with hundreds of different fake mac address -but all of them begining with 00:0e:8e- and they are highly populating the excluded client table.

I suppose there is no solution for that until now

Thanks,

Jose

There is no wildcard for Mac filter. The whole MAC address has to be entered.

If you wish to deny access to

If you wish to deny access to a single wireless client by using their MAC address - use the following command from the CLI on the WLC:  config exclusionlist add <enter mac address> <description>
