Windows 7: Setup Home Network in Windows 7

Setup Home Network in Windows 7

Hi

I need some help setting up my home network. This is how it works:

All computers can connect fine to the WiFi I have in my home. Internet also works fine. What I want to do is setup a cable connection between two of the PC's. They should still be able to use the internet on the WIFI but when I copy files vice versa, it should use the cable connection. Any way this is possible.

Thanks in advanced.

What kind of WiFi connection do you have? Maybe i don't understand you request but most WIFI modems have a built in router.
If not all you need is a router.

Nope it's not possible. Windows 7 will choose the wired connection automatically if they are using a wired connection.
