How can I disconnect from an AirPort network WITHOUT turning off (disabling) AirPort? Thanks.
Connect to another, or just turn off airport and then turn it back on again.
I'm not sure what you want to do, but if your AirPort is handing out DHCP addresses, you could go to System --> Preferences --> Network --> turn Configure IPv4 off. That will take you off the network. But why?!
In the Terminal, this long command will do it:
To get it connected again without going through the menu, just change the -z to -a.
Try to d/c from within iStumbler and then reconnect?
Apple should make this easier to do. Windows definatly has an advantage on wireless network configurations.
Just connect to 'other', enter a '1', when it errors out, click ok, and you are all good. But, what is the logic in running you're AirPort without a network connected? You are better off just turning it off, as otherwise you are wasting energy.
Why would you want to disconnect from a network without switching off wireless?
I'm using a program called SpoofMAC and it requires a hack to get it to work in Mac OS X 10.4.5 and above. What the application does is change your AirPort Extreme MAC address. However, for it to work, AirPort needs to be active but NOT connected to a network. My issue was that my computer automatically connected to the list of preferred networks. Thanks for the help!
Sounds like someone is going to be joining some wireless networks that he / she doesn't belong on.
