I have 15 systems on my LAN - 7 wired & 8 wireless. I have given them static


I have 15 systems on my LAN/WAN network. 8 wired through a switch, and 7 wireless. I have a net gear wireless router which acts as my internet gateway and through which I have allotted static IP addresses to all the systems. Since all systems have access to internet, there is lot of unauthorized and excess usage. I wish to limit internet connection only to some systems and block internet connection in others without effecting their access to the LAN. These systems which I want to block must be able to continue access to shared resources across other systems in the network but not get internet connection. Please help.

    Your router's firewall settings could be adjusted to restrict individual machines access at certain times of day, if that's any help.
  2. Out of the 15 systems, I gave fixed IP allotments (thorught the router) of to to the 8 systems to which I wanted to permit the internet connection. Then I blocked "http" and "ssl" services to all IPs from to Now my problem is solved.
  3. That's the best way to do it - well sorted.
