How to disconnect guest from using mi wifi without my permission?

By sthomas70 ·
If my guest connect to my home network without my permission. Is there a way for me to disconnect them. I can see the name of their computer connected to my network but, it will not allow me to disconnect them. I have Verizon Fios. I do not want to change my wifi key, I just want to disconnect them.

Disconnecting them is pointless theyll just connect again (probably automatically), stop them connecting in the first place.

Changing your password would be easiest and best (and this time not telling people what it is! ). Mac address range will work against non technical types, without changing it.
