Hi all,

Is there a way that I can set up LAN only access on an AP. I don't want people going to the world!

Gerald,
Are these users getting their IP addresses via DHCP? If so, have you considered provisioning that so the default gateway they are told to use is 127.0.0.1 (i.e. the loopback interface)?

Thanks for the prompt response Mike. The only problem is that we are running on a flat network (not ideal but it's what we are stuck with for now). We have two SSIDs running - one for staff and one for students. The staff need to get out to the WAN but they don't want the students exploring.
Over the summer I'll redesign the network but I've been brought in and asked for a quick fix :(

create a firewall policy under the user policy, assuming all students connect only to a specific SSID
allow internal addresses only.

Cheers
