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.
airplane mode only works for wi fi doesn't it? I have the wi fi permanantly disable in modem settings and adapter. I want to find a switch that will toggle the ethernet cable on and off without disable/enable adapter. thanks
Thanks. The switch is located exactly as indicated in your diagram. The switch was attached to the solid orange ethernet wire. All other wires in the ethernet cable were left in tact. Worked great on lap top. But windows 11 showed internet connection regardless of switch position.
