I don't know your router but it should be able to block this relatives homepage.
If that doesn't work just block facebook totally with a timer(when said relative is home alone/unsupervised), this means no one during the set times can use it, But it may have the results you are looking for.
It may be time to assert that having a computer and internet access is a privilege and trust is an earned thing, not just a given.
But that is your own buisiness and this is not a parenting/family forum.

If none of those Ideas work, hopefully a networking guru will jump on this thread and give you the answers you need.

yea i think if anything the time limit settings on the router would work


but u cant block the homepage, the homepage (immediately after you log in) just reverts to 'facebook.com'

the only time u would get a unique ip is if u were to click on the profile tab and view ur own profile



and the whole 'computer usage is a privilege' thing was done before but thankfully the kid doesnt live here, lol

im just anticipating the possibility that summer vacation may result in the kid being alone in my house during the day, and i didnt want to restrict others (who would be getting home from work while i am still at work) from being able to use the computer once they get home

btw, side question,

the router has these 2 options, 'DHCP Release' and 'DHCP Renew'

what are those? do they reset the ip somehow?


i know u can force the ip to change by changing the mac address, so idk if this is something unrelated or just an alternative method to achieve the same thing

I know this may be a pain but set it up to enter a password when you want to use the net on the shared pc, and then lock the other computers with passwords to get on them maybe. Then share the internet password for the shared pc to the kid or people watching him. It may not be ideal, but could work out fine if need be.

Is there some way you could remotely be able to turn on/off the filter you were explaining? Like use a smartphone or work pc to connect to your home network or pc and turn it on/off?

Im not very good at networking but just kinda throwing ideas out there cuz Im like you and tend to look over the simple things as well at times.

1. Open C:\\windows\\system32\\drivers\\etc\\hosts in notepad.

2. On the left hand side of the screen, under any previous entries, type 127.0.0.1

3. Tab over and type www.facebook.com

4. Save and close

This will redirect the computer back to itself every time a user tries to navigate to www.facebook.com
