The only thing you will do is annoy the regulars and the mods

Hope someone can help you?

You will want to block based on his MAC address. The IP address can change if it's automatically assigned by your router, but the MAC address is constant. You can download the manual from here but I couldn't find any way to block by MAC address...

If you still want to block by IP address open the manual on page 35 chapter about FILTERS and create and and OUTBOUND FILTER with source IP being your son's IP and destination being any IP.

Tried to block ip (did everything right apparently) but when i save and reboot, the previously checked enable box is now unchecked. Any ideas?

internal ip will always change. no point blocking it. free software can change it too. 

mac address can be changed easily for free. google this:
mac address change

so there is no way you can stop your son from using the internet by changing your router settings.
