Hi Every body,

I am wondering if I can deny some MAC address in a specific AP?, so this is my situation I have 12 AP330 and my devices are laptop or PCs that have wireless card, the PCs in the location 1-a are connected to the closer AP (AP 1-a) but sometimes roam to the next AP (AP 1-b); that ́s why I want to deny the PC's MAC address of the location 1a in AP 1-b.

Thanks in advance

This sounds like a bad idea, I would not try to do this as it is likely to cause service availability issues for clients.

To mitigate the impact of sticky clients, lower the AP's TX power and remove support for lower data rates, cajoling a client in the BSS that it chooses to associate to.

You can also try lowering the roaming aggressiveness of the clients's NIC driver.

Definitely! :) The big caveat is that on many devices it's not possible to configure this. If this option is available, well worth taking a look too.
