I'm not sure about this since I didn't find any option which allows to do that.
But there is another solution how to do this:

1. You can disable your Network Connection, just right click on your current network interface and choose "Disable". To enable Internet again, right click on inactive network interface and choose "Enable".


2. Click on Windows Start Button, write "cmd" without quotations and write "ipconfig /release" - this will stop your Internet connection, to enable Internet again, just write in command line "ipconfig /renew"
