Hi

I am very new to MAC, I need to do this on my MAC:

- Disconnect from the internet / Turn AirPort Off.

Is disconect from internet and turn off AirPort the same thing?

How can I do this?

Please explain me in detail step by step, today is my second day with a new MACbook Pro.

thank you.

Hi there,

Welcome to the mac world.
If you want to turn off the airport go to upper right side of your screen (menu bar) locate the wireless icon, click on it and select turn off
Alternatively you can go to system preferences (type this in spotlight), go to network, select your  airport adapter and turn it off.

If you have internet connection only from the airport adapter, yes it is the same to turn off the airport and to disconnect from the internet
