The ISP is using DHCP (a pool of ip numbers given out to whoever dials in) You can't just lock out the ip address cause it changes, you have to lock out the entire subnet. That would prevent other users from coming here as well. Give the Isp the address used and the time of day and they will find him in their logs. Then they can disable his account. Course nothing to prevent him from getting another account on another isp.
