Only by IP address on PIX. By MAC on switches or on routers.
Does the switch that the PIX is connected to support acls? What kind of switch is it?

No acls supported on 3500XL
Can you be more specific on what you are trying to do?
Do you have a misbehaving user that keeps changing their IP address?

I have a user which connects to the network using a wireless connection. They are assigned an IP address from Wireless DHCP router. I want to block this user from having access to the network. The DHCP address for the wireless users are changed everyday by the DHCP server.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Try adjusting the lease time for DHCP on the router so that the IP's don't change every day.
Do these wireless users get an IP address on a different IP subnet than the users on the inside of the PIX? In other words  is this wireless router's WAN port or LAN port connected to your network? What kind of router is it? Are you trying to block this user from using the Internet though the PIX, or access the LAN from the Wireless net?
There's not a lot you can do with what you have.

The wireless users get an IP address from a different subnet then the inside of the PIX. However, the WAN port on the wireless router is on the same subnet as the inside of the PIX. Also, the wireless routers is running NAT.

Then the wireless router is where you have to put the restrictions. All the PIX will ever see is the natted IP address and the MAC address of the router.

I would suggest a Mac-IP address mapping to the user for the dhcp appliance. Have the appliance use a different subnet which will not allow the two nets to talk. then use a acl as suggested before for a bootstrap.
