I use Access Control to cut my kids off of the internet at bed time and to keep their friends from waking them up with text messages at the crack of dawn.  I also use it as part of their consequences for less-than-adequate grades or when they get in trouble.

I have to keep a separate list of MAC address to computer name listing and reference it when I need to change the access control settings.  It would be a nice feature to be able to see the computer name instead of the MAC address (or in addition to) when configuring these settings.

It's not always easy to pull a name from a client, but we have requested the ability to create a friendly name in the interface. I don't know if or when it will be implemented or on what models. If it happens it will likely be only available on currently shipping products and future products.
