No.

Caveat - more information needed.

Do you mean that you want to give up a physical wired cable connection and use wireless instead?

Or set up such that the pc has no connectivity with the server at all.

What is the overall environment?

Why do you wish to disconnect from the server? Does the pc have any client dependencies on the server?

If you can connect the pc directly to a network router or modem/router with internet access then the server is not needed per se.

Need more details of your set up, but first thought would be no. If the server is acting as the Internet access point for all computers connected to it, then you would need to run a separate Ethernet cable from your modem/router to your PC. If your PC does not have more than one Ethernet port, then you would need to add a secondary Ethernet expansion card to the PC.
