Here's the situation: my buddy trusts his fifteen-year-old daughter to access the internet unsupervised, but has of late found her on the net at two in the morning. She's accessing using her Mac via their Airport base station. Thus far he's logged her off every night at 9 p.m. and changed the password.
The problem is that she (says that she) from time to time needs access to the net to do homework. He goes downstairs and logs her on, but then her computer remembers the password and she's free to do whatever she wants unless he goes back and changes the password again. But meanwhile all the other computers on his home network can't be used until the newest password is entered.
Technical or social approaches to this problem are welcomed.
