with the computer man. But I can't imagine why being off line would matter. If it's no big deal, do what HP says.

I agree, no big deal. Most newer laptops have an on/off button for the wifi or disconnect the ethernet cable. Afterall, you are making a recovery disk of the laptop "alone" and not any network which may allow that process to take longer. So, i lean with HP on this.
