Passthrough MAC is not what you think. You still need to use a web
browser first, but you are "pre authenticated" so you never see the
login. What you want is allowed IP addresses. And yes, you will need
to type in a lot. However, the "ANY - > IP on remote network" is handy,
and they will still need to log in for web surfing.
