G570 Where are settings to control wi-fi connection?

I think when I set up this computer I selected that it always maintain the wifi connection.  Normally this is fine, but if I am installing a program I may not want the computer to connect to the internet. 

 

I recently clicked on the wifi icon in systray and right-clicked on my connection and selected "disconnect".  It did, but it immediately reconnected.  Where is the setting where I can control this?

 

Thank you.

 

Sincerely, Libra

open networks and sharing center > manage wireless networks > select the wireless connection > disable auto connection or just use wireless switch button (turn on/off) if you have any.

Thank you so much. I followed the path and found the settings and I also have the switch button, which I tried, and it turned off the internet until I turned it back on. I appreciate your help. Sincerely, Libra
