    Default Packet Filter for LAN devices

    We use untangle for our public wifi at Layer2. Discovered devices config'd for internal wifi using public wifi (broadcast). Using UT packet filter to drop unauthorized by MAC Address. Would be nice if DHCP didn't allocate IP address though. Or am I missing something?

    The packet filter has a mac address field that can be used for this. That is a pain to manage over time... is it worth it?

    True, it is a task. But when you have the shrewd and wreckless bypassing your LAN filters or when laptops are misconfigured and connected to LAN and WIFI at the same time the task becomes a mixed blessing. UT wins this one.

    Yeah the ID10T error of connecting to the same network twice...

    The easiest way I've handled that one is to use another interface on Untangle to put the wireless on a separate IP network. As long as Windows isn't connected to the same IP space twice, it does much better.
