My Wlan is a WRT-110, so DD-WRT is not supported on this model.

I wondered if I could at least implement "Simultaneous-Use" so that I  
can limit the user to connect once, but I think it is not possible,

it would at least check the table raddact is where you store the  
Accounting and returning to the above "not possible".

This router is commercial, maybe for its commercial nature, the  
firmware you have installed, do not send those packets.
