Wireless Networking lockout for non-admin users



I have a wireless network here at home with a local pc to the linksys 300n
router and two wireless workstations, one for my daughter and the other for
the family room. On the family room system I have setup a restricted account
and the admin account. What I need to figure out is how to prevent my 24 yr
old from going in and changing wireless network connections to other networks
than my wireless network here at home. I know he is doing this to circumvent
some security settings that prevent certain sites from being access that I do
not want my 7 year old son getting to by mistake. Other than flat out beating
the crap out of my 24 year old son how can I restrict that account so that he
can not make any changes to the network settings? The adapter is a usb
linksys adapter and the linksys software is what is controlling where it is
connecting. Should I just remove that software and use the windows
configuration for wireless instead and can I prevent him from getting to it
again? Any insights would be helpful. Thanks.

There is No simple technical solution.
24 year old is an adult and if he can not understand the importance of the
issue tell him to buy his own computer and not to touch the family
