LInux — when you connect with pomoho iwconfig to set the MAC address of the access point. Script too much to write, I think, will not be a big problem.

If they are in repeater mode — are selected according to the logic drivers. Typically, the separation can be done through the channels, as the SSID will be the one of the channels is different. Try on the client in the settings of the card to register a specific channel if the option for you.

To bind to a specific station, you entering the MAC address of the client and banning on other points. But to jump — I have never had to implement :(
