To my knowledge the best way to do this is to add the domains to your hosts file. These are sites that Windows is instructed not to allow access to. This link has a lot of information and a zip you can download to get started. http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm. You can then add the sites you want blocked manually to the provided list by using the instructions on that page. When you run the file make sure you click "run as administrator."

The HOSTS file will work but it can easily be overwritten. Depending on your router, you can set restrictions there. Here is a guide but it is generic. What is the make and model of your router. You should be able to get the manual on their site. Depending on the router, you can also set a schedule on when the internet is active or not. With a password on the router, your brother would not be able to overided the restrictions.

bosidex, A staff member will advise the same thing non-staff does.

Had JohnC_21 not replied I would have suggested blocking it at the router level.

There are more non-staff than staff. We simply don't have the time to monitor every post. We depend on members to help, which they do to the best of their ability.

What "legit and stuffs" are you concerned about?

I applaud your efforts to help your brother. However, if he is so addicted to the game(s) be aware that he may not see it as "helping". To him, it will be interfering with his "entertainment". His reaction most likely will not be nice. Be prepared for any fall-out that will ensue.

Instead of blocking the server addresses that are many, close the ports lol needs to run. This info may not be up to date.

 

http://www.confignotes.com/2013/12/blocking-league-of-legends-lol/

 

Here are a list of ports to block from lol's support page. Look under the Port Forwarding section. Block those ports. This page was dated Nov 2014

 

https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/201752664-Troubleshooting-Connection-Issues#jwq7

 

Don't block these ports though.

 

80 TCP (HTTP Connections)

443 TCP (HTTPS Connections)

 

You may want to talk to your brother before you do this and explain your concern over his addiction to the game.

Is your brother having Mac?
If you meant to configure the modem / router settings, regardless of operating system you use, log into your router via the IP address (default is 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) using your browser and modify the settings.
I would suggest you to use some firewall / parenting software to control the machine access by your brother and limit his account to a normal user (and not administrator).
That way, he wont be able to circumvent most of your restrictions.

You are either going to have to block the ports using the Windows 7 firewall on his laptop, use parental software on his computer like K9 and set it with a password, or use the firewall in the router if you have that capability. Some routers will let you filter ports for a particular IP or MAC address. What is your routers make and model?

 

I don't think you can do this with a phone unless you log into your router remotely and use the phone to add filtering to the router.
