Just create your users as "Limited accounts" rather than "Computer administrators". Then they won't be able to change the network settings.

Unless the computer is a member of a domain that is the only way. All admins are equal and you cannot limit their rights.

Start -> Run -> gpedit.msc -> Open the User Config tree -> Open Admin Templates tree -> Open Network -> open Network Connections -> Enable the "Prohibit TCP/IP advanced configuration" GPO. -> Exit and reboot.

If you are doing this in a Domain then do the same thing but on the Active Directory GPOs. I think Windows 2003-2008 Server default is to have this setting set out of the box install.
