How can I disable a network adapter programmatically?

Last Modified: 2013-12-05

I have a device running Windows CE 5.0.
I need to be able to disable the Network Adapter from software.
I have the Compact Framework 2.0 available if there are any features there.
Does anyone have any idea how to do this? I have read around and there is mention of IP Helper, but I am not sure if this extends far enough to allow this capability.

Any help would really be appreciated.
