Pfsense + WAP, IP Address Whitelisting



  • I have an ISP > Pfsense > WAP (dd-wrt) setup.

    I want to apply an IP address whitelisting so that only my IP address can connect to this wireless network. Is it better that I add that as a rule in Pfsense or through the dd-wrt's Access Restriction feature or both?

    Thanks



  • Since both MAC addresses and IP addresses can be spoofed, it's MUCH better to set the wireless access point to use WPA2 (enterprise or personal) security settings with a VERY good wireless password.

    Like make it hurt to have to enter that password on new devices... :)

    I use 63 random character strings, from www.grc.com, for my passwords. The only exception is for my guest WiFi, which has a simple password. However, anything connected to the guest network is blocked from accessing anything else on my network, including pfSense.
