All the PC's are connected to the laptop via WiFi right? This means all of the connected PC's including the laptop have the same network addresses.

To make it simple, all of them have the same connection (Internet). There is a program named "Untangle". This program is usually used in universities and offices. You can use this link to be able to familiarize, and learn how to use untangle. This software can block any site you want to block, depending on your settings.

Configure and use the untangle software

You can install a software that has this ability to block unwanted websites or the websites that you desired to block.

AdSense, Parental Control are good examples of that software. This blocks DNS of the sites you'll need not to display on each and every computer attached. You can also install this software on a specific computer and activate the settings to block DNS traffic of unwanted sites.

You can also use the router's ability to block unwanted DNS or websites. Router has this parental control and Internet access policy that filtered websites coming in.

Log-in to GUI and go to Administrator's panel, then type the specific unwanted website that you want to block. You should contact your router's support to ask for better help. They have this log-in info, to access the internal settings of your router.
