Password protect internet access?

Is there a way to password protect internet access?

Simply don't want the machine to be able to get on the internet unless the user supplies a password.

Also don't want the folks who will be permitted to use the net to have root password.

Only one user account, I want it so that when someone attempts to access the net they are prompted for a password, if they can't supply it, then they are denied.
