Internet free local zones with automatic rule enforcement

By turning my notebook on in accumulator mode (not connecting the notebook to the power point) and enabling WLAN, I can simply make my WLAN router crash. Reliably 3-4 minutes after turning the notebook on the router would freeze or crash or whatever, so that it doesn't route any traffic anymore, not to other connected PCs either. Funnily it doesn't happen when the notebook is connected to a power point.
A bit impratical. I think'll simply define all places in the appartment where there are no power sockets as internet free zones. Then it looks like I intended to let it work like that.

puts on tech support hat

the ROUTER crashes? o_O thats kinda weird, your wireless drivers shouldnt crash the router when its running on battery… something must be wrong with your drivers (or something must be VERY wrong with your router)
