I want to allow only a select list of MACs and IPs to surf all day long, then just from 2am to 4am, relax the restriction, to allow all MACs and IPS to surf the web freely.
I don't have enough karma to post a screenshot. I've uploaded one on the web, but I can't put a URL in here.
I'm expecting that a blocked IP or MAC (not included in the "whitelist") can and should still be able access the router (with the right password, naturally), to configure it. Is that a correct assumption?
Note that a few IPs in the whitelist are other Tomato Routers, which I'm expecting should have access 24/7 (but not necessarily the clients making wired and wireless connections to them). One other Tomato Router (besides the one in question) is also in "WDS + Access Point" mode (with wired and wireless clients connecting), and 3 other Tomato Routers are in "Wireless Ethernet Bridge" (WEB) mode (with wired clients connecting). Was I right to include those Tomato Routers in the whitelist? By including those routers in the list, do I automatically also "whitelist" any clients also connected to them (who are not in the whitelist)?
Perhaps the documentation could be expanded to explain how things get tricky in this regard when there are other legitimate TomatoUSB WDS and WEB routers in the picture, and how their clients do and do not get restricted.
Any help is most appreciated. :)
