Hi Guys!

 

I would like to ask for your help. I'm using Omada hardware controller, a TP-Link 605 Router and more than 10 EAP in our school.

 

There is a wifi which our teachers use. However a lot of students getting the password. We are blocking them to use the wifi, however lately I'm getting the following message:

 

"The number of clients to be blocked has reached the limit."
 
I looked at the blocking list, there are 500 blocked client. So is there way to block more than 500 clients (student) from network other than use MAC filtering?

Actually the EAP can only set the maximum of 500 MAC Filters per SSID.

What about setting the Allow List for all teachers?

@rg.kszi For me, It would be much easier just to block an unwanted client from the network, instead of dealing with MAC address lists (allow or not) that's why I'm looking for a solution which allows me to block more than 500 clients from the network. :)

 

Is there a hope TP-Link raises or (deletes) this limit in the future?

You could change the WiFi password and communicate it to the teachers. But probably it is time to look for a better authentication mechanism bbased on logging on with a more authoritative identity than the WiFi password. Using the logon/email address of teachers to logon to the network sounds like a more robust method. The downside of this solution is that you will need to provide another authentication option like using RADIUS or a portal. But doing nothing is not an option anyway.
