I have a location set up in the network preferences that takes care of these very problems. All it has is every network type turned off. Very nice for solving problems

What are the setting for nothing connected?

Leaving things blank? I don't see any off type choices.

Go to the Network Preferences pane. Create a new Location called Networkless (or something similar). Then, Click the Show drop down box, and choose Active Network Ports. This will give you a list of all of the Active Ports on the system. Simply uncheck all of the boxes in the list, and click apply. You now have a Location with no network.

It's great for those times when you don't have a wireless connection and don't want the airport draining the battery looking for one.

First time I tried this I was only able to uncheck Internal Modem; couldn't even select (i.e. highlight) any of the other active ports. I deleted/recreated the "No Network" entry, then couldn't uncheck or select *any* of the active ports. Toggling the changes lock didn't help. Weird.
