    Restricting devices to particular AP

    Am I right in thinking that I can restrict particular devices so that they'll only connect to certain AP's?

    It could be helpful in stopping some devices leaving certain areas...

    Depends on your wireless solution... the simplest method is to set up an SSID that is only broadcast from a particular AP. More fully-featured solutions allow you more control.

    You can do mac address filtering and effictively ban the mac address.
