Configuration > Show Nav > Advanced Configuration > Security Policies > MAC Filters

Create the filter for the MAC you want to kick off and keep off. Apply it and job done!!

You can use MAC filters to permit or deny wireless clients to access SSIDs based on the MAC address or OUI of the client.

That is, of course, the convenient-yet-insecure way of doing it.

The secure approach is to use a PPSK-per-user or 802.1X.

In the case of 802.1X, you disable the account and can terminate the session via CoA or via HiveManager, or wait for the Session-Timeout attribute to kick in.

In the case of PPSK, you revoke it via HiveManager.

Can you expand on the steps to do either one of these?  As a novice admin, I am unsure of how to do either of these... Thanks!

I have to agree with Nick as MACs can be so easily spoofed that it is not any form of security at all.
