Just got the device to replace a very buggy and problematic Netgear and so far I’m really liking the performance, features and the UI. I have a couple of questions about the features which is somewhat confusing:
if I want UI access via https, then remote (by remote I assume it means out in the WAN) access has to be enabled as well. This seems somewhat admin unfriendly since there are many scenarios where intra-LAN access to the UI should be done via secure pipe. I know I can always create a FW rule to deny access to whatever port used for remote, but it seems backwards.
MAC address filtering: again, it seems to fall short. if static DHCP entries are defined (MAC based) I would assume that when the filtering is enabled to allow addresses, the defined DHCP entries would be automtically incorporated, instead it looks like only the table on the filter page is used and everything else gets locked out. This seems like a shortcoming to me, is there something I’m missing ?
