[SOLVED] Kick client from guest wifi

Hi there,

I just can't figure out how to kick a device that has been connected to the guest wifi.
I want to be able to log in to openwrt, see the dhcp lease list and just kick a device, so that it can connect to the wifi again but in the need of entering the password again.

Am I just blind?

Kind regards,


I don't think there is a way to do it in Luci. Maybe there is something with CLI, but I never tried it.
However the client will not need to re-enter the password, if it is still the same and has saved it.

Ok thx.

And by using ssh? Is there an option via command line?


There's a disconnect button in the connected devices list...

Unfortunately I don't see it. Where? I can only see the active leases but there is no disconnect button.

It is in the wireless section of the Status > Overview page or in the Network > Wireless page. In both you can see a large DISCONNECT button for each wireless association.

Located in the Associated Stations section on the Overview page -

.Well I found the location but there is no disconnect button:

Those are clients in the Associated Stations screen shot.

If you do it from the Wireless section, you'll take down the guest network.

Thank you. I changed my last comment and there is also a screenshot of the Associated Stations but unfortunately there is no disconnect button :frowning:

Is that a TL-WA801ND v2?

If so, you're running an old, unsupported version of OpenWrt.

The last OpenWrt version for that device was 18.06.9.

The oldest supported version is 19.07.

It is a TL-WA801ND v2 indeed. Please don't say I cannot update it...

You cannot update it.

As mentioned, the last version supported was 18.06.9.

With 4 MB of flash and 32 MB of RAM, it does not meet current requirements.

Oh man... So I need other devices that can install the newest OS, right?

Thx anyway... :frowning:

You would need a device that is supported...correct.

In the meantime, you might be able to kick a client from guest WiFi using the client's MAC address.

Command line example (one poster tested it on 17.01.4) -
