Just want to block a MAC address on my network

Gone thru every screen/option in the UniFi system (running current firmware/software for 2019) and cannot find any way to block a MAC address. Searched thru forums and found odds and ends, but no actual solution. Is there a way to actually block a MAC address on UniFi gear? Thanks for your help.

Hello @David_Matusiak,

 

Just block the client?

Otherwise uuse the MAC Filter and blacklist that MAC address.

Settings > Wireless Networks > SSID > Mac Filter

Re: Just want to block a MAC address on my network

Well, I finally hovered over the right icon and it said "Block" so I clicked it. I hope this works, but some of the other posts indicated that the switch continued to pass traffic for devices they had blocked. So, no idea if it's working or how to verify...

Hi @AmazedMender16 

 

Thank you for your kind response. I eventually found the icon to block the device MAC and took that action. However, I really appreciate the tip you shared on how to get to the MAC Filter list per wireless network. Greatly appreciated!
