How can I selectively disable a wireless device?

I have the 3800HGV-B RG and there are times in the late evening when I want to selectively disable one particular wireless device. The system software seems to allow only DISABLE or ENABLE "all" wireless devices.

 

Obviously there is a teenager in the house and without Internet access at night, he might actually get some sleep.

 

Any ideas how this can be done short of using the 2x4 approach?

I use a linksys router this is the only way to do it. Use a 3rd party router behind the rg.

Go into the wireless settings page and enable MAC filtering.  Then you can move the teenager's PC to the allowed or blocked list as you want.  But you'll have to do it manually every night and undo it every morning.  And he'll probably figure a way to piggyback on a neighbor's wifi or something.
