I sometimes use my laptop connected to a docking station
or wired LAN in our office and want to turn off the radio
in my wireless card when doing so. I had another
manufacturer's 802.11b card that allowed me to do that but
there does not seem to be a way to do that for the
Microsoft product. Does anyone know how to do this and
also turn it back on when undocked? Thanks.

I would have removed the card, and reinsert it to use it
again...

Otherwise, on XP, go to Network Connections and disable
the wireless network connection. To turn it back on,
reenable the connection.

A third method requires to open the properties for the
Wireless connection (you can do this by right-mouse
clicking the wireless network icon on the docking bar on
the bottom-right of the screen). I don't have a wireless
laptop here, but if my memory doesn't fail me, one of the
properties in a secondary dialog for the wireless card
hardware says "radio." Select disable or enable.
