Static ARP tables for AirPort Extreme

I am running an Airport Extreme Wirelss Base station with PowerPC PowerBook G4.  I have WPA2 running on a closed network.  I would like to add a Static ARP table to record and basically create another authentication layer using MAC address.  Can the Airport Extreme do this?  If so, how?
Thanks,
Doyle

MAC address restriction can be entered in the Airport Extreme .. see page 43 here

There is no reference I can find to editing static ARP tables on Airport Extreme Stations.  The Airport Utility is the only interface for editing settings on the Extreme

Thank you for trying.  I agree, there is no other reference to be found on this topic.  Believe me, I search thoroughly before asking a question.  My concern is  "Man in the Middle".   My thinking was static ARP entries would prevent such an attack.  While MAC address filtering is a step in the right direction, it doesn't defend well against spoofed MAC addresses.
