I am trying to Block a computer on my wireless network without using a password. I want to be able to view computers and just click block.
I am doing this because my internet is overused all the time so when I think someones on to long I can just block them temporaroly.

You probably have to do something in the router, or just kill them off / disconnect them

Or dont let whoever use it at all

Altho I wouldnt use it without a password if theyre all on the net.

You'll get more people using it. Then you'll have something to worry / moan about

You could set up MAC address filtering through your router and when you wanted to block a particular computer, you could just take that computer's MAC address from the 'allowed' list and put it in the 'block' list.

This a pretty tiresome way of doing it though. You could try and use QoS rules on your router as well and slow their internet down so much that it becomes pretty much un-usable.
