View Full Version : Swapping from wireless to wired internet question

09-13-06, 08:57 AM
I'm on a laptop and I'm receiving some files very slowly (from msn), and the wireless connection which comes from my router, is unreliable. Is it possible to swap my internet connection from wireless to wired without losing connection? In other words, I want to plug the laptop in the router, and make the wired connection get used, rather than the wireless. But is there a way to make the switch without losing connection?

why cant you lose connection? are you downloading something? :naughty:

well, you can attach the wire while the wireless is still connected, then disable the wireless and it will switch over to wired. however, you will lose your connection for a second or two.

if youre wireless is unreliable (therefore assuming it frequently disconnects and interrupts your connection) then why are you worried about interrupting your connection for a few seconds?

im confused about the question tbh :confused:
