    It would be nice to add the ability to mac ban users as well show "Shared MACs"

    Are you talking about network MAC addresses? If so that's technically impossible.

    Yes, and how so?

    The MAC of a connected client device isn't exposed to the PHP application.

    You can fetch it through javascript.

    Only via really nasty methods such as Java applets and ActiveX controls. Both of which would require explicit user permission to do and be massively hindered by browser support.

    I'm not aware of any methods to do this that would actually work in practise.
     
    Alfa1 and Snog like this.

    Fetching through JS requires activeX which needs to be allowed by the user so it'll be very hit and miss. Not to mention it's slightly underhanded and malicious.
