How do I kick an Xbox 360 from my WiFi network remotely?

I'm trying to torrent and download here but my brothers are hogging all the bandwidth playing on Xbox Live! The Xbox 360 is connected wirelessly to the network so is there a way where I can quietly kick it off the network, secretly allocate all of the bandwidth to myself, or just control my home wireless network without them knowing?


Answer

Yes, sure
Most wireless routers enable you to control that using its IP (like 192.168.0.0)
You should have that IP in the router manual
Once there, you can control who gets what
You can create password, refresh IP addresses, restrict access to only certain devices, etc
