Isolating my teenager's computer from others on my WRT54GS.

    My son's computer is connected to my WRT54GS via Netgear powerline adapters. I want him to be able to connect to the network but not my and my wife's computers. She is wireless and I am on another wired port. Any suggestions [Note: I can't seem to get the WRT54GS policies to work -- maybe because of the Netgear powerline adapters?]. Any advise would be really appreciated!

    This is not a router question; it's a firewall question.

    On File/Printer sharing in Windows XP firewall, edit the policy, change the scope and exclude your son's PC by IP.

    This might therefore require you to set up all the machines on the WLAN using static IP addresses.

    On the NIC in network connections, edit the TCP/IP entry, and specify the IP addresse.

    If you're using a 3rd party firewall like ZoneAlarm, you can exclude IP addresses from accessing the PC.
