You could try doing a search in Help for Hardware Profile. I'm not sure
if this method would work, but if it does, then just disable the NIC in
the profile that the user would be using.

The reader should exercise normal caution and backup the Registry and 
data files regularly, and especially before making any changes to their 
PC, as well as performing regular virus and spyware scans. I am not
