    What? Is disabling the adaptor too hard? I'm sure there's something for this, but uh... really..?

    Or do you want to disable Internet access and still have LAN access?

    I want to disable internet access at my client PC because have one program it run online but I don't want it to update, If update it will not work any more,
    if first start it will auto update when internet not disable, this game is no option to disable auto update.
    so every time I must go to
    1. My Network Place
    2. click on properties
    3. right click on Local area Connection click on disable to disable internet access
    4. then start game but not log in yet
    5. Enable Local area Connection, allow internet access back
    6. Log in to enjoy game
    so every time I want to play this game I must do this.
    Have any program to on and off internet access instant of part 3 and 5?
    thank for any reply.
    Best regards

    You might wanna try making a batch script, that does the following:
    1. Disable network interface
    2. Run game
    3. Enable network interface

    Checkout netsh command.
    netsh interface show interface ------ Shows available interface
    netsh interface set interface name="Wireless Network Connection" admin=DISABLED ------ Disable wireless connection
    netsh interface set interface name="Wireless Network Connection" admin=ENABLED ------ Enable wireless connection
    start c:\windows\notepad.exe ------ Run a program

    If you have firewall installed, then you might be able to configure it to block that specific program from going online.

    +1 to what rabbit posted above.

    Go to start and type firewall in to your search box, Block the games connection in inbound and outbound rules using properties.

    Auto-update can't be disabled. He wants to block internet access only during the update check of the game so it wont auto-update. And then enable internet access after the update check (has failed).

    You can just create a separate batch file to enable and disable network interface. Or a single batch file to toggle enable/disable network interface.

    You can use:
    Code:
    netsh interface show interface
    to show what interfaces are available. Just replaces the wireless with the connection you are using.

    In that case, have the firewall block inbound & outbound connection for the duration then resume normal operation.
