Whenever I plug my laptop into the docking station, it continues to use the wireless adaptor rather than the LAN connection. To force Windows 7 to prefer the LAN you must change the priority in the Network Connections window. But why isn’t this the default?
- Search for “View Network Connections”.
- Click “Organize->Layout->Menu bar”
- In the menu bar, select “Advanced->Advanced Settings”
- Move the LAN connection above the Wireless connection.
