CPE210 V1.1 How to limit access to certain IP range?

Model: CPE210  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 2.1.6 Build 20170908 Rel. 45233 (4555)

My CPE210 is operating in Repeater Mode and is being accessed via WiFi by 5 surveillance cameras with fixed IP Adresses. The adresses of the cameras are consecutive in the last digit. I'd like to limit access to the CPE210 to only those 5 cameras which form a small range. How can I best do that?

 

Thanks in advance and regards from Bavaria, Germany,

Mario

@MarioT, you can use the MAC filter setting to restrict connections from the cams to the CPE. Find it in the »Wireless« menu:

@R1D2 Thanks for that! Yes, I am definitely aware of the MAC filtering and I have been using it up to now.

 

I am wondering if there is any ways to do the same, but with IP adresses?

 

Do you know if it is possible?

 

Cheers,

Mario

No, it's not possible and it would make not much sense to block clients by IP address since traffic is not IP traffic alone. There are protocols not requiring an IP address at all, thus it's not possible to deny access just by defining IPs to exclude. Clients could easily circumvent this limitation and gain access using another IP address.

@R1D2 OK, if it isn't possible that's just fine and I don't have to look any further.

 

Thanks for that!
