Q

Controlling network access by MAC address restriction on wired networks

If you've used MAC address restriction to control your network access on your wireless router, can you extend this to your wired network? Our security expert explains in this response.

Does the restriction of access by MAC addresses also extend to a wired network connected to the wireless router, or does it only restrict the wireless clients?
If the wireless router has access restriction based on MAC addresses, then the same will be applicable to all the systems connected directly to the router.
