    I have an Airport Extreme Base Station and am wondering if there's a way I can block certain devices such as a Mac from connecting to this router or using the internet? It's okay if I simply block them from the router but would like the option for it to connect to the router such as using the printer but I want to block the internet. Is this possible?

    Thanks

    You can block them from the router through MAC addressing filters. I don't know of anyway within the router to accomplish this. You could use a separate filter (through a server) or through a service such as OpenDNS by setting up an account.

    Turn off the WiFi and don't give the iMac a port on the router.
