If you keep bluetooth off, and tell it to never look for wireless 
networks (change "search interval" to never), then you get something 
similar to offline mode.

Then you can disconnect from network with

dbus-send --system --dest=com.nokia.icd /com/nokia/icd_ui com.nokia.icd_ui.disconnect boolean:true

And reconnect to a specific network with

dbus-send --type=method_call --system --dest=com.nokia.icd /com/nokia/icd com.nokia.icd.connect string:$NET uint32:0

where $NET is the network name (that appears in the connect dialog) 
before diablo, and network id since diablo. You can find the network id 
by a command similar to

gconftool-2 -R /system/osso/connectivity/IAP | grep -B 15 home1

The id is the long string of hex digits.
