turning off the wireless network radio

I'm having a real bitch of a time trying to figure out how to shut down
the wireless adapter's radio.  The driver module won't unload as long as
the adapter is active, and neither ifconfig nor iwicontrol are providing
a solution either.

I'm using (as you may have guessed by mention of iwicontrol) an Intel
wireless adapter, with if_iwi.ko as my driver module.  It's an Intel
PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection according to pciconf -lv.

Thanks in advance.
