hp docking station swap between wifi and ethernet


I have a HP docking station and when I undock my Elitebook Revolve 810 which is connected through a ethernet cable, I have to swap between from the ethernet cable to a wifi connection. In this case when I undock, i have to click on my WIFI SSID to connect to be on-line again. I just wonder if I could do that automatically and when i put my laptop back to the docking station I could be back to my ethernet connection and vice-verse.

Can you advice?

Thanks in advance,

Windows7 is doing that automatically for me.
Any HP docking station drivers that you perhaps did not install yet?
Is the WiFi connection set to connect automatically?

I didn't install any software from the HP docking station. Windows 7 is set to connect automatically.

Please advice.

I'd check the HP site for updates, I see an update for the ultraslim docking station:


Note that I'm assuming you have the G3 and are running W7 pro 64 bit.

There may be more updates that you need like the HP Support Assistant Software.
