Look at the ipt_recent module for iptables. It's in the man page. You
can set up a list of IP addresses which are loaded when iptables starts,
then refer to the list by name in your rules. You can have multiple
lists with different names, so you can have various lists for different

I have not used ipt_recent myself, so cannot comment on its reliability
or performance or anything else, but it looks like what you need.

In general you can optimise a list of rules by finding commonality
between them, and setting up separate tables ("chains") to handle that

For example, the MAC address is common to your sample rules, so you
might set up a table for that MAC address and jump to it. Then it only
needs a single comparison. A rule can end in RETURN, which transfers
control back to the table that next rule in the calling table, so you
can set up "subroutines".
