Hi, Apart from disconecting the modem is it possible to stop access via a broadband connection on one computer in a network? ie, via a password would be good. win XP Pro. Ta, Dennis.

Change the connection type to use a proxy server that doesnt exist - not a very secure method, but it will stop little kids and total newbies

Hi, We have 5 computers connected via wireless router. It is OK during the day but at night 1 of them is still running so that it be used for non internet work. However we would like to stop unauthorised people from getting on the internet. On a dial up it was easy to password protect the dial up. We could just unplug it but to do this every night would be a pain. Ta, Dennis.

There should be something in the router software such as a schedule where you can time Internet access or block services at times to suite you.
