We have an iPad that we use in the office for patients to check in for their appointment. We have 2 WiFi connections available to use. #1 is our private network and #2 is our patient / public network. If I connect to option 2 the iPad has to open a web page and accept the TOS before it can continue functioning. If I use option 1, every 10-15 min a staff would have to input their AD username/password for the internet to continue functioning. Is there any way I can just whitelist the MAC address of this iPad on either connection to bypass these issues? We have a ZoneDirector but I don't recall what model off the top of my head.
If you have "modest" environment you might not have a radius server. If you have still not a simple click a few buttons job. -- This might seem overkill for one device but it'll do what you want. Could regard it as a quick dirty fix. Create a new WLAN called IPAD use an ACL list with the ipad MAC in it and assign that list to IPAD. screenshots in a minute.
In ZD configure access control L2-L7 access control create new.... add in MAC of ipad...save
create new WLAN configure WLANS create new... edit as required access control drop down menu should have the IPAD ACL list (you previously created) as an option.
As John correctly mentioned this is not as secure as other methods and is not "good practice" unless you know how to lock your IPAD WLAN down in other ways.
Minor simple improvements include not broadcasting the IPAD wlan, restrict to one client (yours) for the WLAN on that AP (stops any other device from connecting) restrict it only to IOS devices, assigning WLAN to only one of your APs on 5GHz, reducing the power output of that AP WLAN to minimum needed, scheduling the WLAN (7AM-7PM say), limiting throughput...
look through the options and figure out what you need bearing in mind they can occasionally have unintended outcomes!
If you restrict to one client connection and add in a long inactivity timeout (say 60mins...if you are busy practice then that shouldn't be an issue) the ipad would hold the connection and no other device could use that WLAN.
