Answers :

If there isnt a button on the laptop to switch it on and off, then the easiest way to turn it off is to disable the wireless network adapter.
\015\012To do this, open Control Panel and double click Network Connections.
\015\012This will then show your wireless and ethernet adapters as icons.
\015\012Right click on the wireless adapter and then select "disable".
\015\012Your wireless adapter should now show as disabled.
\015\012If in the future you want to turn it back on, do the same again but select "enable".

I need to set up my IP provided WiFi router-modem (Westell 327M) for use with my two laptops, such that the router-modem provides me internet access via ethernet cables (not interested in the WiFi aspect of the router modem).
