Wireless MAC Filter

Reported by: nocturnaltek Owned by: somebody
Keywords: Broadcom Cc:


Firmware: DD-WRT v24 RC-6 (01/02/08) vpn

When you create a wireless virtual interface, the MAC filters will not apply to that interface. I have two SSID, one on wl0 (WPA2) and the other wl0.1 (WEP) and it seems the filters are only applied to wl0 and not wl0.1.

Well... Generally developers should need to make everything to be "multiple interface compliant", say you add virtual SSID, you should get another MAC-filter list for that. this sort of stuff :)

sure. but what if the broadcom driver does not allow this? sure we try the best we can and on atheros routers such filter settings are possible. but for broadcom we need to hack the driver first

Lack of driver support would indeed explain situation much :) Also that's unfortunate to hear for us too. I suppose us informing broadcom about these kind of issues would help as much as shouting it trough window... So I hope these type stuff generally makes an way into DD-WRT eventually where it is possible, atheros, and thus x86 too :)

Anyways, DD-WRT rocks :)

BrainSlayer? is right...I am using the Broadcom chipset:

Broadcom BCM5354 chip rev 1 (Buffalo G125)

So if I understand it correctly, it sounds like an isolated incident with this particular driver.

Thank you for the clarification and the DD-WRT does rock indeed!

Nintendo DS should support WPA/WPA2 then I wouldn't have this issues. Oh well, thanks again! Keep up the awesome work!
