He's probably thinking "Internet" is the same as "Network". I'm not aware
of a way to solve his problem if this is what he's thinking since disabling
their network rights would simultaneously remove access to the captive
portal preventing them from starting the process to begin with. :)

I have no idea what you're talking about. The whole purpose of Captive
Portal is to restrict internet access. They either auth with username and
password via the web page, or you add their MAC and/or IP address in the
pass-through. This is how it works on my network.
Does anyone else know what he's talking about?
