Question about Linksys BEFSR41 Cable/DSL Router W/4 Port Switch, Retail Box (DSLSBEFSR41)
How can I disable intenet acsess on one of the computers connected to my BEFSr41 wired lynksys router?
Access your router Setup page
Open internet explorer go to http://192.168.1.1 (default) username: admin (default) password: "leave it blank" (default)
Go to Security go to Filter
if you know that Ipaddress of the computer you want to block for example 192.168.1.10
You can create up to five different IP Address Range filters Users who have filtered IP addresses will not be able to access the Internet at all If you only want to filter one IP address instead of a range of IP addresses, enter the same value into both fields For instance, if you wish to filter the PC with the IP address of 192 168 1 5, enter 5 into both fields on one line: 192 168 1 5 ~ 192 168 1 5
if you know the MAC address of the computer click the Edit MAC Filter Setting and input the MAC address you want to block.
blocking by MAC address is the most effective solution to block a computer... while blocking by ip address will be easily bypass by changing the ip add of the pc
then saved your settings and reboot..
