You should also be able to disable the card in BIOS. Do that and Windows won't even see it.

Hi,

The internal wireless card call be disabled in
1)Bios
2)Network Connections
3)Device manager.

I suggest u disable it in the network connections ,so that u can revert it back with less effort if u need to.
