Hi, I have some family who are visiting from a few days and they are illegale streaming movies from Kodi on exodus and I have told them to either stop doing so or they will disconnect from my internet but they refuse to do both. So I want to block it if it is possible but I don't know if that's possible and how to do that. I would appreciate it. Thank you.

Are you trying to block them entirely or just block this behavior?

 

A lot of what you may or may not be able to do will depend on how fine-grained the controls are in your modem/router.  You could always set up MAC authentication where only devices whose MAC addresses you specify are allowed to access the router in the first place, at least by wireless.  I think it may also block throughput if an ethernet cable were used, but I'm not 100% certain on that.  This would block them entirely, but you'll have to collect the MAC addresses from your own devices that you wish to allow to connect, at least for the duration of their visit.  You can always turn off MAC filtering after they're gone if you want to allow others that you give the password to to be able to connect.

 

I'm also going to shift this thread over to the Networking forum as it will be via tweaking your network that you will achieve your goal.

you could enable QoS on your router and limit their bandwidth usage by their local ip address/mac address

are they using their own devices (smartphone, laptop etc) or a communal PC?


Instead of reading this, why not do a backup of your PC.

You won't regret it.
