In previous versions of Airport Utility I've implemented MAC address filtering/protection as an added security measure to my home network. I also restricted the DHCP range but I never assigned a MAC address to a specific entry.

With the new Airport Utility V6.1 I cannot find where I can maintain the list of MAC addresses - I've tried to find this but it looks like it is no longer available. Can someone point me in the right direction please?

It's still there. Select your router and click Edit. Go to the Network tab and click Timed Access Control.
