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.

Sorry about that.  Its Standard version software.

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
