Hi Bill,

Happy New Year!

Did you try simply disabling the network adapter and the wireless device through device manager?  Then just set up a user on the laptop itself, rather than using a profile that you normally would use on the network.

Dept of bizarre requests –


I have been asked to setup a brand new windows 7 laptop for typing only –NO INTERNET (wireless or Ethernet)


I was thinking of setting up the student’s account with some sort of hardware profile which disabled networking … could I simply statically address wireless and Ethernet and make the gateway ?


Trying to get the easiest way to do this…
