How Do I disconnect my wireless connection using the Linksys Wireless Network Monitor WPC54GS?

Hello all - I recently installed a Linksys wireless network in my home and disabled my Windows XP Wireless Zero Configuration tool as part of the installation (and per the recommendation of Linksys).  In it's place, I am using the Linksys Wireless Network Monitor v1.0.

My question is, how do I disable/drop my wireless connection when I want to continue working offline?  I would think there would be a disconnection option in the Wireless Network Monitor, but this does not appear to be the case.  Please advise how I can easily disconnect from the wireless network, short of pulling my card out. :)

Thanks!
Brian
