How to Stop iPhones from Connecting to a DHCP

By sdamlo ·
Hello,
We have a quest wireless account that is open and doesn't require a password. This is nice when people with their personal labtop and need internet access. Problem with it is their are alot of iPhones that keep connecting and filling up my DHCP. I know I could block based on MAC address but anyone with a Apple computer would be blocked aswell. Is there a way to block based on Name of device? Most users don't change the default name of their iPhone, or anyway else?

Thanks

You could spend the rest of your life blocking MAC addresses ...

Each time a new one popped up. That is hardly conducive to even elementary security.

Far better to block EVERY MAC address other than the ones you allow.

Personally I'd set a password and then only give it to your trusted users (if you can trust them to keep it private).
