automatic switching from wi-fi interface to ethernet needed

Hi. I have my netbook connected to router. But sometimes i need to connect it by ethernet port to copy some big files quickly. In this case i had to turn my wi-fi connection off by hand. Can i tune my windows 7 so this swithing from wi-fi to ethernet port goes automatically. And switch back to wi-fi after disconnect cable?

I have not used this though. I suggest you read a little more about it and as always scan the download before installing.
