How to disable the MAC Filtering in hostapd ?.

Post by Roberto Peña » July 1st, 2015, 6:30 pm

Good afternoon.

I'm adding in /etc/hostapd.conf line "macaddr_acl = 0" to try to disable MAC filtering on the hostapd and can not. I'm looking in forums and the configuration file "hostapd.conf" is very different from ours.

Does anyone know how to disable MAC filtering on hostadp?

Thank You.

Hello.

I think that's it.

http://wiki.ipfire.org/en/configuration ... cesstoblue

It is to rule xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/24 and MAC put nothing.

Bye.

The MAC filter in hostapd is not used in IPFire, but adding the rule you posted does the job.

I recently switched to using external Ubiquti access points and couldn't figure out why my WiFi clients weren't able to access DNS after I switched my WiFi card with an ethernet card...I forgot about this!

So to help others I have updated the wiki. Changed this https://wiki.ipfire.org/configuration/f ... cesstoblue and also linked to it from this https://wiki.ipfire.org/addons/wireless/start .
IPFire 2.x (Latest Update) on x86_64 Intel Bay Trail CPU, 4GiB RAM, RED + GREEN + BLUE + ORANGE
