A network cable is a physical piece of hardware. There is no way that any Windows policy setting (or indeed any Windows setting) can prevent any hardware or cable from being disconnected.

That's quite obvious if you think about it.

I think the OP is asking for a way to lock the computer if the cable is unplugged (although I can't see any logic to this request!). I don't know of any way to do this with existing tools although it would obviously be possible to write a program that constantly monitored the network and if it became disconnected would lock the computer. This would be pretty counterproductive as it would mean that any time there was an interruption to networking - for whatever reason - the computer would lock up.

Is this supposed to be some sort of anti-theft measure (pretty ineffective) or what is the logic behind it?
