deny-policy means that the mac-adresses you've added with 'iwpriv wlan0 addmac ##:##...' is denied access. Try 'maccmd 1' if you want to deny all connections (that are not in your list).

Subject: iwpriv maccmd does not filter
I have tried filtering mac addresses with iwpriv on the following setup:
D-Link DWL-650 cards in access point and two clients
My clients lose sync with the access point when they are kicked, but then they immediately renegotiate! For example , I would think that the following two commands would lock out all clients from my access point:
# iwpriv wlan0 maccmd 2
# iwpriv wlan0 maccmd 4
But when I do this, I see my win2k and linux clients drop one ping as they disappear from /proc/net/prism2/wlan0, but then they immediately reappear and keep pinging! Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
