Hi Experts,

I need your input in how to create a policy to disable the Wifi access whenever users are connected via wired. I tested an Intel solution that worked. If not, just use route preference (via policy?

My environment as per below:

Domain/Functional level 2003

Client OS: WIndows 7 SP1

helper=Aruba

Radius server). Microsoft Windows 2008 R2

Can you please provide instruction step-by-step to create that GPO to disable Wifi access only when users are connected via wired?

If possible, is there a way to disable Wired access when users are connected via Wifi using the new GPO above created?

In total, will need your expertise to setup two new GPOs, one for each situation depending on the type of connectivity[wired, wifi]

the metric is set in the OS to automatic so that when the laptop is connected to LAN it auto fail over to the fastest network, which is LAN, your operating system will not use both. No GPO needed as a matter of fact you will not find a GPO for this.

You may however you scripts if you still want to force the fail over.
