This is simple. Go to:
1. Network
2. Interfaces
3. Select interface that you want to remove from the zone
4. It is most likely set to static IP. From the drop down box select Unassigned instead of WAN

This should be enough. th interface will be removed from the Zone WAN and LB group.

Sonicwall should stop advertising this IP. Keep in mind that the external router may still have an ARP entry for this IP so you may need to wait or reboot it. (Cisco may keep the entry for 18min!)

Good luck!
