I'd suggest starting at the Router Manufacturer's website.  Find out some technical information about your router first, like if it's even possible.  Most wireless routers run a small webserver (usually built on a linux distribution of somekind) so they can run a web interface for configuration purposes.  The likelihood of it running php I'd have thought are probably, minimal, but it's not beyond belief.

Also, if you're new to PHP I wouldn't advise embarking on this as your first project.

Again, this is functionality provided by most wireless routers already.  I suggest reading the manual thoroughly before posting here.

My Linksys Wireless router allows me to block traffic on specific ports, allow certain machines access to the Internet at certain times, monitor network traffic and who's connected and send what when etc.
