My sister is having trouble with her teenage son using up all the bandwidth and datacap. He has not co-operated and I have blocked his wireless access until I find a better solution.
He is using Vuze, and possibly other p2p clients. I wish to block these but I believe that Vuze is pretty clever at finding any open ports including 80 so I don't think port blocking is any use.
My sisters router is a linksys WAG54gP2. It supports basic access restrictions including blocking up to 4 URLs or 6 keywords. I have entered torrent, vuze, bebo, youtube, & limewire which will nobble things a bit.
Is there any way of reliably blocking torrent traffic with this router? Will blocking ".tracker.", and "/announce" stop vuze?
Is there any replacement firmware with better access restrictions?
Any ideas please?
