sonicwall TZ170 MAC address object not accessible from Firewall rules

Im trying to block a person who is plugging a laptop into our network from getting access to the internet. I have the MAC address and added this as an address object on the TZ170 but I don't get the option to add a deny rule referencing that address as a source. My other idea was to block the issueing of an ip address to that machine but the TZ170 doesn't have a facility to do that. Any suggestions?

add the mac address as a address group on the address object page, then you will see it when you create your deny firewall access rule...if using enhanced firmware.
