Blocking a wireless connection

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Here's the deal, oh almighty FPSB - my sister recently got a new MacBook, and she's constantly having torrents downloading, which affects my internet way too much, seeing how her MacBook's wireless internet is using the one I have on this computer. Now I'd want to know how to either block a specific connection or set a block so nobody else can use it? Would prefer blocking just her connection, any help? Also I'm not using a wireless connection, wired up to a router I know it's possible, just don't know how to do it =)

    You have three options:
    • QoS to limit her bandwidth
    • Block her MAC address which would completely kill her connection, but she'd realize it was you
    • Block the ports she's using for torrents, she would probably think her torrent client is broken
    Exactly how you do that depends on your router, so we can tell you about terms and whatnot, but we can't give you step-by-step instructions unless someone has the same router as you.

    Why don't you just download things when she downloads things, so she goes reallly slowly,. or just ask her to stop downloading, that's what I do.
    none.

    I think he's asking for something where at the click of a button he can disconnect her which sounds like the MAC address option.

    Yes, destroy her computer while she sleeps, or drop it a pool. Then blame it on the dog. Works all the time.

    The QoS option sounds quite perfect, only problem's that screwing around with internet connections and whatsoever I have no clue about. I do know how to block her MAC address, but then again that'd be too harsh D: Just limiting her bandwith would be perfect. She's using uTorrent and my router's a TeleWell TW-EA510 v3 It's a good thing my sister doesn't know shit about computers =D

    If you find out how to access the router(ie the ip address) they usually have built in options to stop it from working.

    okay now, there's a QoS option in my router but the problem is that I'm not quite sure how to use it >: changed the language to english in my router settings and took some screenshots, if anyone could give me a hand with this =D and after clicking add, it gives me this I can just block all wireless connections using my router with just one click, but that'd just be harsh ):

    I don't think you're very knowledgeable in this area. That's a local page. Only he can access it. Suckage, if you can't figure out how to configure it, come to #fpsbanana. I'll be able to help you in a few hours.

    Just limit the TCP & UDP connections on the port range the µTorrent is using. Like this Atleast it killed my utorrent (got a telewell too, config page is pretty much the same)

    Just something to note: If you're using DHCP (which you almost certainly are), your sister's local address will change. If you base the configuration on the local address, you'll need to force her MAC address to use a specific local address.
