Sorry if this topic is in the wrong spot, new to the forums.  I have 3 sons that all play a computer.  Is there a way I could temporarily disable the internet for just one of the computers instead of just disabling the internet for the whole house?  They are knowledgeable on computers so it can't be something on the computer itself unless its a secure program that requires a password to remove and everything.  I was hoping there would be something maybe in the router's settings that would allow me to see the devices connected then just disable connection to one.  Is that something that exists?

Should be something in your router.  Which router (make and part number) do you have?

Dual-Band Wifi 802.11n

XB3

 

Is that the correct information you were asking for?

No.  Look on the router.  On the back should be the make and model number.
