MAC Address Filtering on Server 2003

I was just looking at one of my posts from last March about mobile lab connectivity. One thing I can add is that we set our lab laptops so that Windows cannot turn off the wireless. This way students are less likely to lose their network connection once they get one. We have also greatly increased the number of access points in the buildings (which has led to new issues with wireless interference and channel selection).

I wanted to add the link for MAC address filtering on Server 2003. Despite doubling the number of addresses available, we have again started to run out occasionally at one location. Blocking DHCP access to non district computers using MS Callout Filter is discussed here.  Found the download and instructions here on Mark M Manning’s blog. Thanks Mark!
