Hi,

Is there a way to set the network adapter order automaticaly? By GPO or powershell?

The reason why we want this, is because that wireless is ordered higher than wired network connections, when we check in under Advanced settings for network adapters.

No, as far as I know a GPO or Powershell-way does not exist for this, the only way to do it is manually. The problem (one of them) is that the GUID for the adapters is different on each machine.

You could try changing the metric, like discussed in this older KB: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/894564

Or try something like a script to shut-off the unused nic maybe?

There is no way I know of to change this by script, only through GUI.  But it shouldn't matter, the connection utilized should be determined by the interface metric.  The interface with the lowest metric should be the one used if multiple are present.  Run "route print" at a command prompt to see the info.

PS : I have not tested it, so test it in your lab before you run it in production..
