I've found that Spotify is a massive bandwidth hog, so I'd like to block it.
The details of how to do this can be found here:
How can I block spotify on our company Firewall?
To save you looking at the discussion, the answer apparantly lies in "just blocking 126.96.36.199/22...prevents login."
However, I have no idea how to block the IP ranges that they suggest. Also does "188.8.131.52/22" mean 2 ip addresses (184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11), or 23 ip addresses (between 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124)?
So can anyone show me how to do this? I've tried blocking port 4070, but spotify reverts to using ports 443 and 80, which I shouldn't block?

Are you in a 'student flat' where others are using it? If so and you have legal control of the router try putting the domain name into the Blocked Sites list on the router. Security>Block Sites. Remember to click Apply.
