    Hey Everybodeh :D

    Just wondering if there is anyway to block internet access temporarily.(not on my computer, but i was wondering if i could to some wacky-code stuff and such to prevent access on another computer that is in my network) The reason why im asking this is because i think there isnt enough bandwidth to go around my house(there are 2 xbox 360s hooked up to live, and 3 computers hooked up)lol. But yah just wondering if this is possible to do because ever since my step sister came here for the summer, i have been getting dced non-stop.

    Help pl0x? i thank you in advance :)

    You could use your router's settings to only certain MAC addresses and leave off this computer and only add it when you want them to have access. It wouldn't be a great setup, but the only thing I can think of off hand. There's also parental settings you could setup on her machine that determines what times of day she can access the net, but that would require messing with her machine a bit.
