    Firewall breech....
    Hi,

    I have an issue in regards to my internet. My brother has a pc and has been blocking my IP address from our network simply because my mac slows down his X-box live connection. Is there any way to prevent him from blocking my IP address or getting access to my computer?

    Many thanks!

    There is no firewall breach.

    I'd suggest letting your parents know that he is going into the router settings and making changes so that he gets priority use and disallowing your computer any access. I'd also suggest to them, that they change the password on the router after they set it up properly so that neither of you have access to it.
