    I have four pc's on home network and sharing the internet connection through
    a Netgear DG814 router. My son always has a room full of his friends and
    farting around on the internet chatrooms with Windows Messenger. I can never
    seem to get rid of all these people.
    Is it possible for me to disconnect him from the net with my pc also
    connected to the router.
    I could pull the plug out the router, but he would just put it back again
    when my back was turned.
    I dont want to permanently disconnect him, only when he has a room full of
    people.
    TIA

    Have a look at the Filters options in the router control panel.

    Hi ripper, Gripper here! have a look at this:

    sorry about the long URL but I don't know how to shorten it. Anyway I had
    the same sort of problem and with some Usenet help (thanks Rob) managed to
    do what you want

    It doesn't seem to be possible with your router. You could bodge it,
    but that would be fiddly. Bodges that spring to mind are:
    enter incorrect static routes for the servers that he's using
    change the subnet settings so his machine isn't included
    Neither of these is a single-click solution. I'm surprised that the
    router doesn't have a simple facility to block local IP addresses and
    ranges, but there's no mention of it in the manual that I looked at.

    Your son & his chums may know more than you, and block you from your own
    network...

    :)

    Why not just talk to him?

    Where is your router? just unplug the damned Ethernet cable to his room!
