The MAC address (short for media access control address) is the worldwide unique hardware address of a single network adapter.
The MAC address can be bound to a user ID to prevent unauthorized access.
Using MAC binding facility Multiple MAC addresses can be set in the single-user ID.
control admits or denies wireless association based on the connecting device’s MAC address.
2. Hotspot Based Authentication
A hotspot is a physical location where people may obtain Internet access, typically using Wi-Fi technology, via a wireless local area network (WLAN) using a router connected to an internet service provider (ISP).
Public hotspots may be created by a business for use by customers, such as coffee shops as well as hotels.
When mobile devices connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot that uses a captive portal and the web browser is automatically opened but so that the user can sign in.
Until this authentication process is completed, the Wi-Fi hotspot connection is not available for applications and services running on the device.
3. PPPoE Based
PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) is a specification for connecting multiple computer users on a LAN (LOCAL AREA NETWORK) to a remote site through common customer premises.
This authentication method can be used to have an office or building-full of users share a common Digital Subscriber Line (DSL), cable modem, or wireless connection to the Internet.
It combines the Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP), commonly used in dialup connections, with the Ethernet protocol, which supports multiple users in a local area network.
It has the advantage that neither the telephone company nor the Internet service provider (ISP) needs to provide any special support.
4. Static IP Based
Static IP address means Internet service provider (ISP) provides a permanent address to the computer.
A static IP address makes it easier to work remotely using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) or other remote access programs.
Static IP addresses are much easier to set up and manage with DNS servers.
users through DHCP, it is also possible to monitor an IP address reservations in the active reservations section.
