    So I have a WRT54G 2.0 router and I want to block the P2P program Ares. My roommates are constantly on it and it annoys me as well as lags me horribly. Is there a way to block Ares? I have Sveasoft Alchemy 1.0 on my router. I have no idea what ports to block or anything. Any feedback/help would be appreciated.

    if i were you i would go into his comptuer and check and see which ports he uses. he could have changed the ports.
    when you want to black a program 1st
    1go to the ip address of the router
    2Access Restrictions
    3hit the "addedit services" button and add ares and add the ports it uses.
    4hit save
    5then hit the "edit list of pcs" enter his mac adress
    6and hit enable(above the "edit list of pcs" button)
    7 save setings

    i am useing dd-wrt so the options might be different.

    Already tried that, well I tried blocking myself, and it doesn't work. I can block other applications though. There's something I'm missing....

    why don't you ask him to stop using it or go into the config and turn the upload speed down to at least half of your total avalible upload... that should stop it from being an issue...
    or just unplug his internet connection if he's lagging you...
    or firewall his machine out completely.
