P51 - bios setting for auto wifi disconnection is broken

There is in the P51 bios an option to auto disable the wifi connection when there is no LAN connection. However, this seems to work backwards... The wifi is only enabled when the LAN is connected and there is no way to enable wifi without a LAN cable. This is with all the most recent updates (including bios).

I see the same thing here.  I will ask our BIOS team to fix it.  Sorry for this trouble!

This issue will be fixed in the next BIOS release, around mid-September.  We appreciate your problem report on the forum!
