      You could try the block sites feature, but it does not work too well with some routers.

      Switch off DHCP and set your PC up on a static address maybe?

      You could set up MAC address filtering, anyone outside of the MAC filtering rules will not have access to the web, they will see the router but access to the outside world would not be granted.
