When I laptop (OS=Vista) is in my home network it is connected through a wired builtin network card, but it also is automatically connected to my wireless accesspoint. Both connections are given an IP address.
I am wondering with connection is actually used, the wired (fastest) or the wireless, or both...

Hi,
Windows will not be able to choose between a connection and will pass everything trhough one only. Maybe swaping at some time as it probably doesn't held this properly.
If you use wired connectoin, then just use thebutton on your laptop to disable wifi as you wont need it.
