set priority to xp network connections

Is it possible to set priority to more than one network connection.

If for example both wired and wireless connections are present is it possible to set priority to the wired connection so that when the wired connection is disconnected it reverts to the wireless connection, and when the wired connection is connected the wireless gives precedence back to the wired connection.

Thanks in advance.

The "priority" of a network connection is detemined by the routing table, in the case of TCP/IP. More specifically, the route that matches the destination best will be used first, if there are two routes with the same destination, then the one with the lowest metric will be used.

This is an excellent read from the Cable Guy at Microsoft:
