SonicOS 7 Internal Wireless

About MAC Address Filtering

The SonicWall wireless security appliance networking protocol provides native MAC address filtering capabilities. When MAC address filtering is enabled, filtering occurs at the 802.11 layer and wireless clients are prevented from authenticating and associating with the wireless access point. Because data communications cannot occur without authentication and association, access to the network cannot be granted until the client has given the network administrator the MAC address of their wireless network card.
