    By not trying to advertise your software in such an obvious way..that might help your imaginary situation :)

    Use Netcut and deauth them :).

    Make sure it's your own wifi though, otherwise it's illegal.

    If you know anything about aircrack and have a monitor-mode supported network card, you can also create a BASH script to do the equivalent.
