      Mac Address Filtering?

      I have a netgear dg 834gt ( white one) Firmware Version V1.02.14, Where is the section for Mac Address Filtering? I want to deny access to a client pc, which is connected through a wired connection.

      I have found the wireless connection filtering but cannot see the wired filtering?

      Thank you

      'cause you can't "filter" wired connections based on the MAC address - and under what circumstances would you want to? If you want to deny access just pull the wire.

      If you want to be a bit more sophisticated than that then set up firewall rules but that would require the offending connection to have a fixed ip.
