Local Area Connection enable/disable

Discussion in 'Windows Desktop Systems' started by Anyoldnamewilld, Dec 6, 2003.

  1. Hey I was wondering if anyone knw of a small program that allows you to enable/disable the LAC (Local Area Connection) using a hotkey assigned by you.

    If there are any god programers out there willing to make this tiny program I would be so very happy...

    Thx :eek:

    Why not use a firewall (ie Sygate's one) ? It can block all incoming & outgoing network (and Internet) traffic ;)
     
  3. Thx Ant, I got that now Sygate Pro. The block all, is there a hotkey feature for it though?
     
  4. Just tested that firewall and its really good! I really hope it can have a hotkey to block all and allow all!!!!

    Where cna i find out?

    Just curious, but why? :confused:
     
  8. I need this for a project I am working on to test my computer and brothers computer. It would take to long to explain. I just need something that can block all traffic going from my computer so i can carry on with my project.

    Right-click on the network icon and select disable? Reenable the same way (I think the icon stays).

    lol :D Good luck, hope you get it working. :)

    My point was, if we're talking intelligence, how much harder is clicking the mouse from using a hotkey? :p

    apparently is is absurdly hard think of all the boxes you have to open to access it? or wouldn't a desktop short cut work? or how about putting it in your taskbar?

    I'm not sure if this will work since I just saw this option, but you can try the commands:

    netsh offline (Sets the current mode to offline)
    netsh online

    create 2 bat files and create shortcuts to these bat files with the hotkeys you wish.
     
  15. What is the hotkey for it? I have bought ZAP 4.0 and I cant seem to find out the hotkey for it.
