    Banning certain devices via DHCP

    Is it possible to ban a machine name from grabbing an IP address using DHCP?

    Basically our kids have cracked our wireless key and its going to take a week or 2 to get it all changed and I want to ban certain Iphones and handheld devices connecting to the internet in the mean time. They all show up in DHCP allocations so I was wondering if the best way was to stop them getting an IP in the first place.

    Any thoughts?

    If your running isa, you can just force them all to authenticate to use the internet this normally puts them off using mobile devices if they got the wep.... We also went threw the hassle of making a group in ISA which has all the domain pcs that way nothing can access the net unless its on the allow list.

    Could you perhaps create a reservation to give them a bogus IP address?
