Setting a MAC filter on a router will deny the particular user on both wired and wireless communication since the router will have no intelligence on where the user came from. The best option would be to apply a mac address filter on the switch itself however normal switches even managed ones don't support this option and this will block all communication. What is the exact make/model of your switch? Also, is it managed or unmanaged?

Looking on your router settings you can set an interent access control list to certain hosts but this will apply to all interfaces including LAN and wireless (Page 63 - 74) -

Please understand that LAN and Wireless are layer two devices (Data link) and can only be controlled by either complete block or allowing complete access. The only way of seperating them would be to setup VLANs to segment the broadcast domain but that is not a feature that your router supports

Other than this I do not know what else to suggest other than possibly disabling the Ethernet card on the machine that you wish to not have access to the switch or to shutdown any unused ports on the switch.

Hope This Helps,
Josh :)

Is it possible to bypass the user system completely?
There is only one user on my computer - me. So is it possible to bypass the user system completely or would that require a full re-write of the filing system? Seems to me that I have little if any control over where files are stored. For instance, every time I download a file, it is stored in...
