Ubiquiti UAP-AC-M stop clients

Seting up the Ubiquiti UAP-AC-M to bridge from a UAP-AC-M-PRO seems easy enough, but if a wireless client sees the UAP-AC-M I would like to prevent them from conecting to it. I only want it to function as the remote end of the bridge, not an AP. ANy sugestions?

Or maybe just disable the SSID's in the properties panel of the Mesh AP? 

 

Note: Did not try this out myself.

I'd check out MAC Access lists, and use a White List to allow any desired MACs to connect.

Edit: On second thought...that will limit access to the UAP-Mesh Pro too.

 

Maybe replace the UAP-AC Mesh acting only as a bridge with an Airmax M radio in Station mode.

I did it my way .... Man Happy

Yes, this will work.

 

The wireless link will still use the 5Ghz connection.

 

If required, you can let users use the 2.4 Ghz connection without affecting the 5 Ghz link's bandwidth.
