Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

when it comes to wireless, i think there’s no such policy.but you can create a whitelist on which MAC can only access your wireless device. The consequence is, if somebody connects to your network even if it is a trusted user, he can’t connect onto your network for as long as his MAC is not registered to your wireless device.

    AirMagnet, AirDefense, and similar vendors do this very well. That's what I'd recommend.
