Win7 64bit Home Permium How do I turn off the wireless adapter?

I have a older Alienware Aurora PC which I always connected hard wired. Lately when start the PC the wireless icon comes up and says not connected and sits there for a minute or so, then the hardwired icon comes on.

How do I turn this off? Device Manager>Network Adapters>Disable? If so which one?
