How do I boot someone off my computer network?

I think I might want to block a laptop that currently has access to my network (the computers are XP, in case that matters). Anyone know how to do this?

If you go into the router's control panel, usually at an IP like 192.168.1.1 (I think that is the Linksys default), you should be able to see the machine and restrict its permissions.

It's not connecting wirelessly.

Doesn't really matter. If your sharing an Internet connection, unless you take turns plugging in, there has to be some sort of router. Each machine is assigned a unique address by the router. If you figure out which machine is the one you don't want, you can then block that address.

This is all dependent on other factors like how DHCP is setup and all that, but that's the basic idea.

So it doesn't matter if the laptop is still showing in my "workgroup"? confuse

Much as I trust you, md, not really comfortable with that. But thanks for the offer!

I have Network Magic. I'm using a router, so it shows all computers on my network. I can mark them as intruders if I don't want them looking at my files.
