    In what? Linux, Windows, on a computer, on a router etc .......? Bit more info could probably help a tad!

    There's most likely a command for disabling the actual device. You could google for something along those lines...

    You have to be root to do this...


    ifconfig eth0 down


    Substitute up for down to bring the interface back up.

    also try man ifconfig

    I used the ipconfig bit before... It disconnected me from gaim and the internet, but ipconfig wlan0 shows I still have an ip on the network

    Ive looked around linux networking commands and the only command I could see to close an interface didnt work for me, I guess it was for a different distro of linux :s
