    Quick question:

    If I want to kill my son's XBox live session from my PC, can I just check the "delete" box on the active DHCP Table?

    If so, what does it take to reactivate it? (will he just have to power-down and power back up the XBox?).

    Thanks in advance.

    the easiest way to do it would probably be to set up a profile for it under the access restrictions tab in the router's firmware, just make a listing for it with the edit list of PCs button, then you can just hit the deny internet access button when you want him off, or even set up certain times that he can and cannot get online with it. all you need is to get the xbox's mac address to add into the router list. I dont think that hitting the delete button in the DHCP clients table will even disconnect him, and even if it did, DHCP would just reassign him an address, he wouldnt even have to power cycle the xbox. Good luck, let me know if you have any problems with it.

    Thanks for your response.

    I've tried using the tables that you mentioned in the past, however, I haven't had much luck with them.

    For whatever reason, the specified device doesn't drop out -- I've checked and re-checked the settings and finally just gave up.

    Guess I'll just use the tried and true method of pulling the plug!
