Well, we know the machine knows the maximum speeds of each of the connected networks, but I know it doesn't always pick the one with the highest rated speed. So I think there's some 'smarts' behind it, and recall reading about it before, but can't remember what all it is able to look at.

I know I've seen preference to a lower speed network, with quite a bit of other traffic on it, even while it had access to a higher speed network with absolutely no current traffic. Then after a little while it decides to use the higher speed network.
