So... I have a situation where I have a number of devices, and I only want ONE of them to have network access at any given time. No need for prioritization or anything fancy, I'm OK with only the latest one to request an address being the one with network access. I thought about assigning them all the same static DHCP address, but you can't add multiple MAC addresses to the same IP.

Any other ideas?

Set your dhcp lease number to 1. Eg. DHCP Leases start at 101 and end at 101.

I can't do that... I have other devices that need access.

So, say I have 10 devices... I want 5 of them to have access all the time, but the other 5 only 1 at a time.

I thought about trying something with vlans, or a second router only for the 1 at a time; but would rather find something simpler if possible...

Then set the five to static and have one dhcp lease available.

That would work, but at the expense of accommodating visitor that come in with a laptop. If it comes to that, I'll probably go with a second router just for the "pooled" devices.
