Cut It Off
Can I disconnect my internet
connection by simply disabling
the network connection listed in
the Control Panel? Will this really
disconnect the internet? Will it cause any
software issues like data corruption?
If you mean by disabling the
network card, yes, the internet
connection will get disconnected.
No data packets will be transferred to and
from the PC. If you are paranoid about this
then unplug the network cable or modem
from the PC. Place it far, far away in a locked
box. But if you really want to terminate the
internet connection permanently, then you
will have to inform the ISP.
