    Not with a consumer router you would need a feature called 802.1x on the lan port of your router which authenticates the machines connected.

    There is no way to tell he hooked up a router. Even if you were to limit it to his mac address on his pc almost all routers have the ability to spoof mac address. He could just key in mac of his pc and your router would not know it was a router.
