Hello,

Can somebody tell me how to disable the Wireless connections as soon as the wired lan is connected and reactivate wifi as soon as the pc is disconnected?

A solution with AD Policy is suitable, but any other proposal is welcome.

Have you tried to raise the metric value of the wireless on the dhcp scope? This would in theory force the LAN network when connected as it has the lower value.

start by checking the metric using route print

assuming Windows 2003/2008 is used as DHCP server for your Wireless network.

1)go to your wireless scope
2) Right click Scope Options select "Configure Options".
3) Click "Advanced" tab.
4) tick "003 Microsoft Default Router Metric Base"
5)Set a value higher than all other network metrics. Like 400 or something

do the same for wired network setting them to 0

use route print to check your work on a client

hope this helps
