Default Easy way to turn off wireless?

In XP is was easy to turn of the wireless. You simply right-clicked on the
wireless radio signal meter in the task bar and choose to disable the radio.
It appears to me that in Vista you cannot do this w/o going through about
three windows. Am I missing something or is there an equally easy way to
accomplish this like in XP?

Thanks,

Hutch

I pin the icon "Wireless Network Connection" of "Network Connections" to the
start menu. Then I can enable/disable it by just right-click it. Of course u
can put that icon on anywhere, say, desktop. Hope that will help you.

Actually, thereīs a easier way of doing this, doesnīt matter if you have
fisical shortcuts embedded on your laptopīs keyboard. Simply press the
"windows key" and "x". There you have lots of on/off switches!
