Here's the setup:

 

I have a DSL modem supplied by my ISP and is hooked up to a wireless router (also includes 4 ethernet ports). My PC is connected (wired) to this router along with our phones (wifi).

 

My brother has a habit of disconnecting the modem from the router and plug it directly to the PC when he is playing because our internet speed is hideous (and he is freaking selfish).

 

What I would like to do is to assign a static IP to the computer so that when he connects the modem directly, he wont be able to access the internet, forcing him to use the router instead.

 

How do I do this and still be able to use the wifi normally? Router is Netgear WPN824V2

What I would do is go into your Modem (usually 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or sometimes rarely 10.0.0.1) and set it to deny your brother's computer access based on his MAC address. Not sure if your modem is capable of that, but it might be. 

Then, the only way he will be able to use the internet is through the Router since the Modem would only see the Router's MAC address.

Ah, no. The modem and router is separate. The modem has a telephone line going in and an ethernet cable going out. Also, we only have one PC that everyone uses.

 

My goal is to set the PC to use a static IP so that it wont have internet access if connected to the modem directly.

You could assign a static IP Address in the DHCP server of the router but that doesn't disallow him to connect the modem manually. If the modem has its own DHCP server then you could block his access using his MAC Address. Unfortunately, I know not much of modems that has this specific capability. (A unified modem/wifi would be able to do this)

 

EDIT: This wouldn't work as they're separate devices (as you specified). You could get by with installing a software locally but that route isn't foolproof.

Thanks! This worked. All I had to do in addition to this is to assign a static local IP (to the PC) within the router's settings.

Um, you would need to open command prompt to get the ip address assigned to your pc before just entering in some ip address to the network settings. Seriously, how do you not recommend this before hand ?

Should I assign my pc a class c ip address when I know my router assigns a class a address ? NO !

>_< !!
