I'd like to know if it is possible to connect a switch (like a lamp/light switch) to an ethernet cable to disable and enable internet connection, I'm not looking for a coupler or anything else, just a plain switch. Is it possible?

I have a small idea on how I can get it done, either by getting an 8-pole switch or a normal single pole switch but then I'd need to find the most important wire in the RJ45 cable which when cut the cable becomes useless.
