    Greetings.

    I have an AEBS in the front of my apartment that is extended to an AE that's in my apartment's hallway. Is there a way for me to set up the AE to only accept connections from the devices in my room and force all other machines to connect to the AEBS instead?

    I feel like there is a bedroom that's smothering my AE, essentially rending my Internet useless back in my bedroom on many occasions. It seems to happen when the other bedroom is streaming stuff.

    Tried searching but alas, here I am.:confused:

    Use the Access Control tab to limit the devices by their MAC address.

    Thank you.

    As a means of closing this thread out:

    I entered all of my devices into the list (MBP, iPhone, iPad, ATV2, PS3). Also, I noticed I had an issue with a connection so I had to add my AEBS MAC addy into the list too, presumably so the two can talk to each other.
