You need to create certain rules - based on each client's physical address - in the router's firewall settings, normally listed as Access Control or a similar description. You will need to refer to your router's PDF manual for more detailed information as each brand is different.

In order to connect to the internet you must use TCP/IP protocol. You could therefore run your local network with a different protocol, such as IPX/SPX, and only have TCP/IP enabled in those computers that are to be connecting to the internet. Anyone with a basic knowledge of networking could, of course, re-enable TCP/IP, so it depends on who you are trying to block and their level of computer literacy.

Alternatively, there may be settings in your router which will let you give certain computers LAN access but not internet access.

Similarly, you could configure each client's firewall to block internet traffic through the LAN and then password the firewall's config. Easy to do with any decent firewall.
