How to manually login to Wireless LAN?

Hi:
I am running Windows XP SP1. I installed Belkin Wireless Desktop PCI
Adapter. The problem is that, everytime I login to Windows XP, my
computer connects to wireless network. But, I would like to manually
turn on the wireless connection after I login, since sometimes I
do not need to connect to internet. I called the Belkin customer
support, but he told me it is not possible. I have difficuilty
believing that. I turned on the Wireless Zero Configuration
service on and off, but it did not help. Belkin utility has a radio
option that I can disable but then I need to do this everytime
before I shutdown the PC. I will really appreciate any pointers.
Thanks.

Go to Start, Control Panel, Network Connections. Right click the Wireless Connection and disable. When you want to use wireless just enable the same way.
