    So I'm sharing internet with my Powerbook using the airport card. Everything is working great but I'm wondering is there a way to block ip instead of having a password?

    Like is there a manager or anything like that?

    When you say block IP I assume you mean a specific client? If so then a MAC filter is what you want because IPs are dynamically assigned (unless configured as static). IP or not, a dirtbag on the shared connection has access to your Mac. Just use a good WPA2 password.

    I see, the thing is that I'm on a school and I only want teachers to access it, and if I put a password one of those teachers might slip the password to students.

    And no, there are no funds for a wireless router.

    You could potentially dynamically assign IPs in a limited range and ensure you have enough teachers to meet the range. Or you could statically apply IPs to the teachers laptops and put those within range. That being said you are really asking a lot of the AirPort card in your PowerBook.
