Is it possible to setup an access list for allowed computers on the network and prevent others from using any network resources like internet and printers. Even with a valid username and password I want them blocked if they are not on the Access Control List.

There are several ways to do this depending on network size. If you are talking small office/home network, you can filter MAC addresses so certain machines do not get addresses. Larger networks require some version of Network Access Control, either native to your OS or through 3rd party packages.
