Are you asking whether you can use an .htaccess file to block connections from a client's network interface card with a specified MAC address?

I don't think it can be done.

I'm guessing that the original poster figures that it's harder to spoof a machine's MAC address than its IP address.

It's not _that_ much harder. I automatically reset my NIC's MAC address to something pseudorandom (but reasonable-looking) every time I reboot.
