Wireless to Ethernet Bridge

    I have a (God forbid) Macintosh in the building that is hard to get to by
    ethernet cable. It is an older model Imac and therefore has a rather slow
    USB 1.x port. So I installed a D-Link wireless to ethernet bridge.

    I want to restrict which devices can connect to my network using the MAC (no
    puns intended) address. Do I enter the address of the bridge or the actual
    computer?

    Thanks,
    ~alan

    List the MAC address of the bridge you're using and set it up to only allow
    listed addresses. That should do it.
