How do I disable a WIFI connection?


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

I have a really annoying cousin who uses way to much internet and ends up making it super slow for me. I can not go onto his ipod and forget the network as he has a password on there. Is there any way I can disable the WIFI connection so he can not use it while he is on his ipod? The internet I am currently using is EE moved from Livebox.

I have already tried to reset the EE router to factory settings and all that has done is reset everything but still kept all the WIFI connections, I know this because my WIFI connection on my iphone was still connected to the router.

Is there any way I can disable the WIFI connection for him or even decrease the bandwidth so each time he plays a video from youtube it keeps freezing for him?

How about changing the WiFi security key and not sharing the new one?

I think he needs the password if he is using WiFi in something other than his Ipod.

Perhaps using the DHCP setup to track down the Ipods MAC address, then make dish out a non working IP address for that number, just change the second last number in the address by 1. i.e 192.168.1.40 to 192.168.2.40

or if the router has mac address filtering disable/disallow the Ipod address.

An iPod shouldn't really cause the issues you describe!

What's he doing on it?

iPod Touch and constant viewing of YouTube clips at HD resolutions could eat a fair chunk of bandwidth
