You will have to use the hotkeys to manually switch off the wifi (Adds
battery life as well)
Some like the toshibas have an actual switch whereas the Dells have A
Function key + F2 to turn it off. The only other thing I could think of
is some tricky scripts to load/unload the wifi modules on demand, but
this can be pretty complicated and specific to the model and card type
of the notebook.
