I wish to disable my wireless networking because I have a wired network connection.
I am using ubuntu 12.04. In the menu at settings > network > wireless there is an option to press a switch which toggles on/off. If I press this button, my wireless will toggle off. However, it hasn't actually toggled off. I don't lose the wireless IP address. If I close the menu and open it again, the toggle is set back to "on".
I can disable my wired network just fine. My wireless network, however, will not stay off.
