I apologize for the vague thread title...I wasn't really sure how to summarize it.

In a nutshell, I have a Control box where I have specific firewall rules setup for users, based on reserved IP addresses assigned to said users.

The problem is that one of the users (my 12 year old son, FWIW), figured out that if he assigned a static IP to his iPod Touch, he could circumvent the firewall rule.

Is there any way to have Control block specific MAC addresses when they're using the WRONG IP address?

All devices in my home are assigned IP addresses based on DHCP leases and have rules applied (or not) appropriately. At the same time, I allow unfiltered guest users, and I don't want to give that up if possible.
