After logging into your router you would go to the Attached Devices [or similar named page] and note the mac address of the offending unit.

You would then go to the blocking page and enable blocking and block based on this noted mac address.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Change the access-key/password - and change any vowels to say accepted other characters. Use a zero for a letter O; use an exclamation mark for number 1 - and so on?

Hide the router's SSID (the name it broadcasts to the world) - but make sure "you" know what it is... as you will need to manually enter it in order to connect an y time there is need to do so (as in reconnect). Alternatively change it - but best is to hide it whatever it is.

Even better besides the above...

Use mac filtering - a list you create which restricts access to only those mac addresses in that list. This is done within the security settings for your router's wifi setup.

There are two passwords (using common parlance) that should be changed:

1. Your pass phrase, pass key, or whatever you happen to call it. This is the one you use to connect to your Wifi and would need to be changed on all devices that use it (computers, iPads, and so forth).

2. Your router access password. This is something you type in the browser, along the lines of (it varies). It takes you to the place where you make router settings changes. This password can be changed from any computer on your network.

It's a pity that use of the word "password" for both has come into being but I guess that's life. Same as a computer reboot (restart) has now become corrupted to mean Factory Restore. Being cavalier with the terminology has sure caused confusion.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
