Running windows 7 on my lap top


When I plug in the dsl line to get things to run faster.  How do I disable the wifi so that it works exclusively on the DSL cable.  Then when done how do I switch it back to wifi??

Cant find that.

Most laptops have a button or key combination which toggles the wireless NIC and Bluetooth on and off. Check the PC's manual for details. On my PC I have both, a switch at the front of it, and I can also use "Fn+F2" as the key combination.

Unless you're connecting at less than 20Mbps, the WiFi connection should be as fast or faster than a direct connection to the DSL modem.

Still, if you click the 'start' orb, type in ncpa.cpl and hit Enter... when the Network Connections window opens, right-click the Wireless Network Connection and choose Disable... that will disable the wireless; to turn it back on, right-click the Wireless Network Connection again and choose Enable.

You can also just click on the adapter in Network Connections and more options like Disable, Diagnose, Status, et cetera, will appear on the applet window's toolbar.
