Dynamic VLans / Network Access Control

I have a situation that I need to run 3 different networks (VLANS) in our network.  The issue is I need to be able to separate them into the VLANs no matter what port they plug into my switches with.  I cannot statically set the switches to different VLANS as a person my unplug a device from the wall and then plug in their personal laptop.

What is the best method to accomplish this?  Basically, if they are  in MAC pool "A", they get assigned to the default VLAN, if they are in pool "B", the get VLAN 101, and if they are in neither pool, that get dumped to pool "C" on VLAN 202.

the core of the network is Netgear Prosafe M5300 series.

Netgear switches cannot accomplish this alone, they need a configured RADIUS server to group clients and assign VLANs dynamically. In addition, it appears that perhaps not all Netgear Prosafe switches can do this.
If in your web management menu you have options such as: "Security"--> "Port Authentication"--> "Advanced" --> "802.1X Configuration" then it looks good for you to do this, at least that particular model switch.
There is much more information available on Netgear's support site, and here's a preconfigured query which returns several help pages:

Good luck.
