Allowing only defined computers (based on static IP address) to access the Internet Windows XP

Hello Experts,

I have a network with several computers. I want to configure the network so a few of the computers can access the Internet but others can not by allowing predefined (by me) static IP addresses only to "see" the Internet.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Easiest way,
Leave the gateway address blank or put a bogus gateway there
Remove administrative rights from users so the users can not change it

If you have enterprise switches or routers
Create an access list and configure the access list to block a range of ip addresses from communicating on port 80 or 443
