    How to limit Wifi Users

    I own a linksys WRT120N wireless N router. Along with this I also have 2 computers, one PS3, one ipod and android device linked to it at dissimilar times. I would like to make out, if there is whichever method I can systematic my computer, cut off access of whichever additional device toward the internet temporarily, all the way through a software. Each and every one of them has the password to router and I don’t want to block them permanently. Is there any software with which I can control the network or wifi or internet access manually and switch it whenever I required?

    Each router assigns DHCP range of 30 IPs. The rest will be filtered by the firewall on the router itself. If someone tries to use an IP outside the range without be filtered using dhcp. It seems very difficult. Sure I am overlooking something else. As far as I know there is only one option without any software. For this you should open the router control panel and allow MAC Address Filtering and presently take away the MAC Address of an exacting gadget when you would like NO Internet Access intended for that gadget. Penetrate the MAC Address again, and it will be within Network once more

    Limiting bandwidth means that the equipment lets you use up a certain amount of kbps, QOS instead lets you use from a certain amount of kbps, or guarantees a certain bandwidth, independent of traffic in the rest of the network. A typical application is reserving bandwidth for IP telephony, since it is nice to have a short conversation that does screw up your little brother falling debris connection with bit torrent.
