If you want to block internet access for certain devices on your network, you can use the Firewall to achieve this easily. For example a wireless AP doesn't really need internet access to work. You could decide to block internet access for this device.

Navigate to Firewall and click Rules.
In the Block Outgoing card click New to create a new outgoing block rule.
Select the device you want to block internet access for.
In the Destination IP input field put any as the destination to select all. This will still allow access from the device to the local network.
Click Save to save the rule.

You can easily disable this rule to allow the device internet access temporarily and then enable the rule, to block its internet access again.
