I am thinking of letting a computer have temporary access to the internet via my wireless router which is protected with a wireless key.
But I want to be able to stop the computer using the access. So I want to remove the wireless key information from the 'temporary' computer afterwards.
Is this possible?
Is there another way?

Yes, just delete the connection in Windows on that machine -- or if it uses the wireless adapter's utilities to connect instead of Windows' own, delete the Profile (a record of setting for that connection).

Alternatively just change the password/wireless key in the router.

Simple, thank you.
