Re: Router acess

What router model do you have?

 

Is he connecting with WiFi or with ethernet?

Re: Router acess

And how are you blocking his access?

 

Have you changed the login username and password for controlling your router?

 

A BIOS change is not likely to get him in. Perhaps he is trying to mislead you.

   If he can change his MAC address, then any access denial based on a
specific MAC address is unlikely to be effective.

   Have you considered ADVANCED > Security > Access Control : "Turn
Access Control On" and "Block all new devices from connecting"?  I
haven't tried it, so I know nothing, but I'd guess that allowing
specific MAC addresses might be more effective, unless he can turn off a
MAC-allowed device, and impersonate that one.

   It's none of my business, but you seem to be seeking a technical
solution to a social problem.  If the boy is an adult, then have him
evicted.  If not, then take his computer away.  If he persists, then
destroy it.  It's a small price to pay for a good education.

Is that through Access Control?

 

Blocking new users would let him in only when he used the old Mac address. You might then be able to maintain some sort of control through the use of Parental Controls.

 

See page 123 for the manual for your D7000, which is one of the documents at the end of this link:
