  1. Hi,

    I am trying to connect my laptop to both wired n wireless networks. Wireless should provide access to the internet. When I connect wireless first, as soon as I connect the LAN cable, the pc does not connect to internet anymore.
    Is there a way I could force it to use wireless over wired to connect to internet?

    Thanks a pile!

    Let me add that I tried changing the "binding order" in the Advanced Settings, and it did not change anything..

    Thanks!

    Ok did it...for some stupid reason i had not changed the metrics yet..
    changing the metrics for TCP/IP and making the LAN one seem slower, got this thing working finally!
    thanks neway!
