How to block a particular Mac-Address of pc to get into network

User is connecting to a wired port on your network? If so it should be wired back to a switch, not your router.

On a Cisco Catalyst switch you can set it up with several security features - make user authenticate (802.1x) or restrict to only pre-defined MAC address (port-security).

How to setup these features and which are available depend on your switch model. For example 3560 setup steps for those features are covered here:

802.1x

port security

Most IOS-based Catalyst switches are quite similar.

Well Marvin, if i block the port then no other laptop can connect to that port. All other laptops are on sites which are located on very remote locations. Thats why i cannot configure port-security. Is there any possibility to block from router? I am using cisco 2900 series router.

How to block a particular Mac-Address of pc to get into network

A router cannot block a particular PC from connecting to a downstream switch using a static IP address.

Once you know the offending MAC address, port-security can block him. Requiring users to authenticate with 802.1x also works. Either method allows other authorized and/or authenticated users to connect.
