Set up an Access Connections profile with both WiFi and LAN devices in it and select "Best Available Network" mode.

Re: How to turn off wireless when docked ?

When I;m at home, I always turn off my T510 wireless. The main switch is a slide switch on the SW corner. To just power off the wi-fi antenna, Fn+F5 does that. When home, I'm always hard wired.
