567119, ethernet cable disconnect switch
Posted by jea, Tue Nov-16-21 01:33 PM
I like to disconnect from the internet when I am working on documents or using a flash drive. I know I can disable/enable the adapter in network settings but that gets tiresome. creating a shortcut works only for disabling. I cannot enable again.
My husband installed an on/off switch on the ethernet cable and it worked on windows 10 laptop but does not work on my new computer with windows 11. when I turn the switch off I am still connected.
Why? can't figure it out. any suggestions. thanks.
