Other than using MAC Address Access Control, is there another way of temporarily removing a user/computer from having access to an Airport Extreme wireless network?

There is currently an unruly teenager come stay with my family to have a holiday/get some work experience, but she's on her laptop (accessing Facebook) until the early hours of the morning. As a result she's been late for work every morning. I'd like to bar her computer from accessing the internet from maybe 10pm - 7am.

Is this possible, other than using MAC AAC?

Change the network password. You could also enable Parental Controls, but many kids these days know how to circumvent that.

I think MAC Access Control is the only way. I use it to block my friends when they come over with their iPod Touches. They love to bog down the whole network.

Thanks for the advice offered :)

Enabling parental controls - is this not something which can only be implemented with physical access to the user's computer?

(in her case, a Windows pc)

No, it wasn't clear whether you had control over her laptop (owned by her or owned by you and given/loaned to her), or which OS was running. My Parental Controls suggestion only relates to Mac OS X.

Regrettably/thankfully she's brought her own computer, which I'd not request to have access to.

I may just temporarily change the network password. Seems the easiest thing to do...
