Y580: Plugging in an ethernet cable disables WiFi

So I've been trying to use my Xbox 360 as a wireless adapter by bridging the LAN/Wireless networks and connecting the Xbox to the laptop via Ethernet. The wireless works fine alone, but when I plug the Ethernet cable into the computer, the laptop automatically disables WiFi and changes to a LAN connection. As soon as the cable is removed the wireless connection returns, but for what I'm trying to do to work, I need both LAN and wireless to be working simultaneously. I've also tried connecting the laptop to a router via Ethernet and received the same result, so I'm pretty sure the Y580 is to blame. Is there a way to remove this feature? I think the ThinkPad has ThinkVantage, but not sure how to change this for the IdeaPad... Thanks to all who respond.
