Mac address control on wireless portion of Cisco 861w

I am replacing a belkin router with a Cisco 861W.  On the belkin, I use a parphrase security process as well as the MAC address filter to only allow manually enterd wireless deviced to connect.

Is the MAC address feature available on the wireless portion of the 861W, or is this feature only available on Cisco swithces?

If is it available, what would the command lines be to enable and restrict MAC address filtering.

You can configure this on belkin router itself
Mac address filtering is available on that model on the wireless side.
Sorry, I'm not a Cisco guy so I don't know the command line.
I think user want to configure that on the 861w to increase security. This is how you do it with radius server
dot11 ssid batman
authentication open mac-address mac-list1
dot11 ssid batman
authentication shared mac-address mac-list1

You define mac-list1 in aaa authentication login, you can find out how to define radius server here:

If you do not have a radius server or not familiar with how that work, you should be able to http to the router and access GUI. This is similar way of how to do it in other Cisco AP:
