You can use Devcon to disable your network adapter via the task scheduler, then just enable it again when you choose.
You can also run a batch script to change your IP configuration, you'd use the task scheduler for this as well.

EDIT: There are also programs like K9 Web Protection that can block web access on a specified schedule.
