Say for example there are 4 PCs with Wireless USB sticks.
If I, on PC Number 1, want to stop PC Number 2 from accessing the Internet without a password, how would I do that?
Any ideas?

The typical way to do that is to have one computer 'proxy' connections for all the other computers on the network. The proxy server has to recognize either the user who is logged on, or the computer they are using (depending on how it is configured), and only then will allow them to access the Internet. You can also use the proxy server to limit what sites users have access to based on an Access Control List.
