To be honest I don't know but I would think you can't connect with both at the same time, if you did the connection through Ethernet you would turn off the wireless point, but if you connect via wireless you don't need the Ethernet connection working at the same time.

One of the experts will be able to give you all the answers you need but if you could, would you post back giving them all the details about your set up, make model of the cards in question what type of computer is it laptop or desktop and who is your ISP, plus do you have a router and if so what make and model is it.:)

It will make it so much quicker and easier for them to help you if they have all the details, don't forget they can't see your machine so don't know what you are working with, thank you and welcome to the forums :)

Using Wi-Fi and Ethernet at Same Time
When both the wireless NIC and the physical Ethernet NIC are both connected to a network that has an active Internet connection, which one will the host use for network data? Will it randomly use both to get data, or will it choose the faster connection? Just a question I thought of today.
