Disconnect WiFi without disabling it

Post by vicat »


I noticed that there is no "Disconnect" option in the network manager applet in Cinnamon. I would like to disconnect from WiFi network, but it is only possible by disabling the whole WiFi in my computer. I would like to keep it active without being connected to any network.

The only way I found is to do it by nmcli command, but I would prefer a GUI way.

So my question is:
Is it possible to disconnect WiFi using GUI in Cinnamon?

Doesn't the On/Off switch in System Settings-Network do what you want ?
