Hi. For reasons I won't bore you with I need to be able to block one particular PC from being able to connect to our 3PC wireless network.

Does anyone know if it is possible to block a particular PC's IP address for instance or is there any other way of doing this?

Thanks

Your saying it's a wireless network, so there must be a wireless router or Access points.

So you can configure the wireless Network/Access point to deny access to a certain PC using the IP or MAC address as criteria.

The MAC address block is more secure since IPs can be changed.

Consult your Router/Access Point Manual for info on how to block access Using IP/Mac addresses.
