It is safe to disable it. Don't forget about it later on Smiley Wink it is also fine left as is.

Thank you! I checked under the wireless tab and it says disconnected. So that is good. Is it safe to disable the wireless completely in device manager? Since I do not need it right now? Or should I just leave it alone....
