I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro on a Dell Latitude E7240.
I am connected via ethernet cable and am also connected via wireless.
I can't for the life of me figure out why when I click DISCONNECT from the wireless AP I'm connected to, it automatically reconnects.
I've already went into every setting I've seen and short of turning the wireless on my laptop OFF, I'm at a loss.

Ex:
I've tried CHANGE PC SETTINGS > NETWORK > CONNECTIONS > MANAGE KNOWN NETWORKS but it reconnects immediately.
