Hi,

in my network, I have some NDAS devices. Most of them are used as Time Machine Backup drives for Mac Books. There is no problem if some users use it with wired network, my problem is the WLAN Access. I have a build in firewall in my WLAN Access Points, but what protocol do i have to block, to prevent NDAS WLAN Traffic?

you cannot block the protocol as other machines may use them
just block their IPs
or better yet: allow only the known IPs access to the WIFI Router

NDAS does not use IP protocol. It uses ethernet frames. So only way to block traffic is by blocking access to MAC addresses of NDIS devices  (if it is possible on your firewall).

WiFi routers can allow only MAC addresses entered by you
if an equipment does not have a MAC address, it cannot communicate on Ethernet (WiFi or Wired)
