Ok....this is irritating me. But here is what I want to happen.

Basically, I have one PC that needs access to our internal network but doesnt need to browse websites externally...ie Google, yahoo. Now I figured the easy fix would be to just change their TCPIP settings from Obtain Automatically...(DHCP) and just type in a bum address. But this is simply fixed.

Also, I want anyone that logs into this with domain credentials to automatically have restricted access, preventing them from changing system settings and installing software. Any hints or ideas?!

Hello funkmastersquirr

I would research limited accounts and if it is XP pro I would look into the gpedit.msc settings.

Your router may allow you to make quality of service settings by MAC address or IP. You can just set it to zero traffic for the WAN. Or it may have other forms of access restriction.
