    How to switch between wifi and ethernet


    Hi All,

    I have a laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad) that is mounted in a docking station. In my house I have wifi, the docking station is connected to the router via hard LAN.

    I have prioritized my connections to give preference to LAN over wifi (as I obviously prefer the fastest connection).



    The Network sharing center now tells me I am connected to both LAN and Wifi, but the system tray tells me Wifi. How do I know through which I am now connected and how to I prioritize LAN? Please don't tell me to manually enable / disable ;-)



    Thanks a lot!

    Try ipconfig and see what your lan ip is
    and then try
    pathping 8.8.8.8
    and if it goes threw you lan card ip first you will know it's working the way you want
