When I have to remove computers, how to I instruct the BOINC client to finish it's work, but *not* download anything new?

I tried to set the network download limit to 0 KB/sec., but the software won't let me do that...

Any Ideas?

thank you!

In BOINC Manager->Advanced view->Projects tab, select Seti@Home and click "No new tasks". The button will change to "Allow new tasks", and the code behind it will stop asking for work from the project, but still upload & report work in cache.
The button shows the option that you have, not the state it's in. The Status column will show the state it's in.
