Yes.

You don't say if you'r running Enhanced or Standard.

In "Enhanced"

- Networks
- Address Objects
- Create a new object, say "fred's laptop" or whatever, Type will be MAC and then put in the mac address.

Now in "Firewall"
- Access rules tab
- Lan-to-WAN section
- ADD new
- DENY radio button
- From Service - Any
- Source - select your new object "fred's laptop" or whatever
- Destination - select "All WAN IP"
- Users - select ALL
- Schedule = Always On

Save. Job Done.

Well the principle's pretty much the same except you don't need to create the address object, and all the Access Rules are in a single long list. Sorry I don't have access to a Standard OS machine any more so I can't dive in and work out a click by click route for you.

I did try what you suggested in the Standard version and it won't let me add a MAC Address Object to the Access Rules...So I am stumped. :I
