Is there a way to prevent users from connecting to company WiFi while connected via Ethernet.  Adding a wireless access point to the network I have noticed that I am able to connect to both. I am listed in DHCP twice as well as DNS twice.

I do not see how this can be done any other way than getting specific software to do so.

Have a look at the link.  

Wireless Protector is windows software that automatically disable WiFi adapters on computers that connected to the company network with LAN cable and re-enable WiFi when the LAN cable is disconnected from the wireless computer. The software wireless auto switching capability helps to secure IT environments from un-trusted WiFi connections that can be used by potential intruders as a bridge to the organization network and prevent computers from using duplicate network resources.
