Activating/Deactivating Internet Access On Same Network
Recently I've encountered a problem involved with networking and web access. My brother, who is connected to the same network as I and connected to the same router, is able to disable access to internet on my machine but I'm still connected to the lan network. This was qble to be done in a matter of minutes.
What I'm asking is how this is done, is there a way to prevent it and can I do it? If so - how.
If this helps - he has router/network admin access. I think this has something to do with my DNS on my PC?
Thanks all! Help appreciated.

It can be done at the router level and there's no way to get around it. Not all router software supports this type of setting, but some do.

your brother is most likely using the mac filtering setting in the router to block your access.
If you want to bypass this, just do a google for "mac changer windows" and find a mac changing program to spoof the MAC address of your ethernet card.

Actually that's a good thought, changing the mac address might work.

Thanks for the suggestions, i'll look into changing the MAC addy next time this happens.
I'll post results when they occur.
