I have a laptop running XP that i use for when im in the backyard poolside, but when large amounts of people come over, they use the laptop like its a toy and ive had a few mishaps with it. I'd like to double click something and disable internet on the laptop and double click another to re-enable it. Ive tried renaming the hosts file, even the entire etc directory, but internet keeps working regardless. I dont want to install special software or disable wireless on my router, because the wii uses that. I thought that putting the router ip in the hosts file would do it, but it keeps working. Any help would be appreciated.
