Hi.
When the Action is selected with "Drop, Disconnected or Ban" in DoS Prevention and Filters feature,
how can I release(reset) the locked client?
By rebooting the AP, the locked client can connect to internet, but this is not good method, I think.
Welcome to any idea and thanks for any comment in advance.

From the context-sensitive help for the page you pasted in:

For each type of screening, you can select one of the following different response actions and set the duration for enforcing that response. (For the actions "Drop" and "Ban-forever", there is no duration to specify.) You can set the duration to any number from 1 to 1,000,000 seconds.

Alarm: The device generates an alarm for a specified period of time but continues passing traffic from the source of the suspicious activity. If the condition continues beyond the specified time, the device generates another alarm when the current alarm period ends. The default alarm period lasts 10 seconds.
Drop: When a threshold is reached, the device continues to maintain a connection with the source of the anomalous traffic but drops further packets from the source for a specified period of time. The default length of time for dropping traffic is 1 second.
Disconnect: When a threshold is reached, the device disconnects the wireless link to the source of the suspicious traffic.
Ban: When a threshold is reached, the device disconnects the wireless link to the source of the suspicious traffic and bans further traffic from that source for a specified period of time. The default length of time for banning traffic from a specific source is 3600 seconds (1 hour).
Ban-forever: When a threshold is reached, the device disconnects the wireless link to the source of the suspicious traffic and bans further traffic from that source indefinitely.
Aerohive devices maintain an internal list of all banned clients. If you want to clear all the banned clients from the list, which cancels all currently enforced bans, reboot the device.
