Amend Proxy settings

by Azzmoh In reply to Restritct Internet access

The easiest way to do this is simply to go to internet properties and change the proxy to something non-existent .
Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings > Use automatic configuration script
ANd then type anything there ( http://internetblock.xxxxxx)
only a knowledegable person can change these settings .
for additional security you can password protect internet properties so even if someone knows how to change proxy settings then they need a password to change above settings.

hope i answered you question !

Most content filters will block all web traffic or allow only certain traffic.

Try using your router's MAC filtering capability.

by jqbecker In reply to Restritct Internet access

Most routers, even cheap ones, have a MAC filtering mechanism to allow [or] restrict internet access. Check if your router has it, and how it filters ie: is it Positive (set to allow MAC addresses you enter and disallow all others) or is it Negative (restrict addresses you enter and allow all others). Most routers are negative filters - they restrict the computers MAC address that you enter.

Next you find the MAC address of each adapter on the computers you want to allow [or] restrict, then enter it into the router's corresponding MAC filter.
