OK..... here's the story...... my 14 y/o daughter has been accessing certain sites on her PC which I consider unsuitable or unacceptable. I have repeatedly warned her about this and have warned her that her behaviour is unacceptable.

We have a 3 PC home network and I have very regretably come to the conclusion that I need to exclude my daughter's PC from this network in order to protect her.

My question is...... how do I disable her PC's access to the internet without disrupting the rest of the network which is needed for us to run our business?

Always a problem polekat. Is your network wireless or hardwired?

If wireless, you can use Access Control in the modem/router and delete the MAC address in there.
If wired, remove the cable from the computer to the wall.

Others may have more ideas. Good luck.

Did you ever think of just using a program to disable certian sites and still allow her on the net. What browser do you use?

I would rather be a little overkill with my computer. Than to have my computer be killed.

You could try the Fox Filter from firefox. Never used it but it looks like it might help. If its not what you are looking for or not get back to me here so I know if it worked out for ya.

Then scroll down to Fox Filter and upload it as an add-on.

Good Luck,

Is your daughter's computer a desktop with a USB plug in wireless adapter, (unplug), or a laptop, which will have built in wireless capability?

The usual way to access a wireless modem/router is to open a browser window and type in 192.168.1.1. Default settings are usually Username=admin, Password=admin, which will give you access to all the settings.

Under Wireless>>Access Control>>View, you should have a list of the MAC addresses permitted to join the internet. ( The MAC address is the individual number of the computer, or of the wireless adapter attached to each computer).
