Wireless and Wired network connection active at same time, which one is used?
Posted on 2006-11-03
I have a laptop that has integrated wireless and a ethernet port. Typically when user comes into office, the connect to the wired network and work. There is also wireless available in office. When the laptop boots up, the wireless is automatically enabled and connects. They are also connected to the wired network. This causes a problem when running logon scripts as some network resources are not seen or correctly mapped. When I boot-up with the wireless disabled, no issues. So the questions are:
1. Short of manually disabling the wireless (enabling it when needed), how do I make sure that the wired network connection is used when it is connected?
2. Is there a way to have the wireless disable itself when a wired connection is active?
