Been stayin with my brother for a while and we got into this online game. However my brother being the jerk that he is went ahead and decided to block my xbox frm the internet (he has verizon fios). On the xbox i can see it is still connected to the wifi, but im not able to access any online features. He hadn't changed any of the login info for the gateway so i went and logged in but my device hasnt't been blocked through there, but i restated the router anyways and still nothing. I just cant figure out how he is blocking me, Could he be using some third party software/app to block me? Ive notice that whenever he decides to unblock me, he uses his phone. If so is there someway to bypass it and get my device back online? btwsorry for the huge paragraph

The router has settings to allow or deny a particular device. You cannot get around this without knowing the login details for the router.

You need to talk to your brother. It is his connection, after all.

Stop being a demanding jerk. Instead of blaming your problems on others offer to contribute to the cost of the internet so you two, together, can buy a faster connection. Then you will be co-owner and can help manage the access.
