Windows 7: blocking one of the computers connected to router

blocking one of the computers connected to router

hi , i have 2 computers at my house , and sometimes i just want to block the other one for internet connection while im online , because my step dad knows nothing about internet connections , and in his opinion , opening as much bittorent apps as you can it's the best way to achieve success in life ^_^ .
so . is there anyways to teach a man a lesson by simply disconnecting him from the internet ?
my router is :
LEVEL ONE
WBR-3406

i found this options on router :
forward rules > special AP , and it has a line to insert the port , and a checkbox to "enable" connection

i'm not sure i can disable connection here , but seems close to my goal . ( i rather to disconnect the whole connection and not just some apps port)

and the other option i found is MAC control .

Subwoffer13, some routers allow you to turn off and on dhcp. this way you can change the ip range of the router and put a fixed IP on your machine, without dhcp giving your other machine an IP in the range of the routers's IP range, they can't get anywhere.

If it was a wireless machine, the MAC address can be entered and not allowed to access the wireless router/access point.

There should be options in the router to restrict or block certain computer from going out to the net by MAC or IP address and could be a system to block at certain times of the day.

Subwoffer13, That screen will do the job. change the ip pool starting address to 192.168.200.10 and the end to .15 or something like that.
then remember to assign yourself a static ip in the range that you set. Then you can disable dhcp.

If it all goes to hell in a hand basket. you normally can press the reset button on your router to put it back to it's original default.
I would check your present IP by using the ipconfig option on your computer and see what it presently is.

Before you do all this, I would take a look at the client list check box and also the fixed mapping box.
there could be an option that would make all the changing unecessary.

I assume you have taken a look at the doc for your router?

It looks to me like a pretty configurable wireless router with 4 switch ports.

Changing the ip for the router and turning off dhcp and assigning an IP to your machine should
do the trick but I did not read the wholre router manual as you might want to do.

That is a VERY BAD IDEA. There are other methods of doing what you want to do. Turning off the DHCP server is not a good thing to do.

Show us other images of your routers setup screens.

It's in the Advanced setup section. Actually your router is a bit confusing, from what I am use to (and that is a lot of different routers of different makes and models).

You can allow and deny access at certain times of the day or all day everyday.

Turning off the DHCP server is a sure give away someone is screwing with the router as the computer won't get a IP assigned to it and neither will any printers or other devices on the LAN. Restricting access makes it look like they are connected, and they are to the LAN, but can't use the internet.
