Hello Niyas,

you can either manually create the MAC database following the article

or use standalone VX to create user database and Captive portal with self-registration as described in guides under article

Where can I find guides for WiNG based captive portal with self-registration?

Hi Ondrej,

I am planning to make a network with 10 numbers of extreme 7502 access points and I have configured one access point as a controller. is it possible to access the internet only through MAC address?

Hi Niyas,

yes, it is possible if you know those MACs before.
Using AAA policy and MAC database you'll make clients able to connect.

Pretty much what is described in the first article I shared.
