Firewall solution to block one laptop?

    Would it be possible to use Windows Firewall, or even a 3rd party FW to block a particular device from connecting to your own?

    For example say several laptops were connected to the same WIFI router in a home network and one of the devices was a bit suspect in terms of possible malware/viruses, but the owner was not bothered.

    How would you protect your own laptop since it's on the same network?
    All Windows OS's and i can admin the wifi router.
