Yes, you can block Internet access in different ways. One is by using the router to block certain PCs.

Go to the router, disconnect the computer connection. You can also set access by MAC address. For only blocking internet access but not LAN, you need to use a router that has better controls than most home routers would have, as in a home router you can lock internet access, but for the whole device, not a PC at a time. You can also use the firewall and gateway to control who has internet access through PC IP and through the server using user group membership and computer AD membership.
