    I just hooked up a router and I want to block internet access to a few stations.

    I've turned on the DHCP server on the router and all the computers are setup.

    What is the best solution?

    Router is USR 8000A

    Thanx

    Look around in the config (and the manual). My Linksys router as options to filter access from certain IP addresses, IP ranges, and even MAC addresses.

    if I create a range that's able to access the net
    and another one to disable the net

    how does the router know what IP address to assign the computers?

    and no my router doesn't have mac ranges

    Set up static IP addresses

    Turn DHCP off and manually assign a permanemt IP to each computer on the LAN. Tne block the IPs of the computer that you want to not access the internet
