Im looking at putting a new switch in at home, currently I have seperate VLANs for different sections such as security, home entertainment, internet and guest, but Ive done this by ports on the switch. Instead is it possible to get a switch which I can assign MAC addresses to VLANS so it doesnt matter what port they are on they go into the correct VLAN and then if its unknown it gets dumped into the guest VLAN?
Even if possible locking down the port to only accept traffic from a particular MAC address, and if another MAC address is plugged in (or a switch) port security is switched on and the port is disabled.
I havnt chosen a switch yet, I was looking at Cisco but thats only cause I deal with them at work, but not seen this option before.
Thanks in advance :-)
