I have a wireless router (an Actiontec PK5000) and two desktop computers that connect with USB wireless adapters. I'm looking for a way to stop one of those computers from connecting wirelessly, without disconnecting the other.

I used to have a wired ethernet connection, but since I've moved my computer to a different room I've had to rely on a wireless connection. Previously, I shut off the wireless in the house whenever other people were hogging bandwidth, but now that's not an option, as it would shut me down too.

Any help?

A valid point, but I need to be more subtle than that. I'm trying to find a way to do it remotely.

I think your problem is social, not technical.

If you really wanted to do so, you could log into your router and configure it, but why?
