How to turn on both LAN and Wireless T430

I need both my LAN and wireless enabled at the same time.  Can I turn them both on using Think Advantage?  I believe our IT dept has uninstalled any ThinkAdvantage software.  Which ThinkAdvantage software should I download and where do I turn both the wireless and the LAN on at?  Thank you

Are you trying to connect through both simultaneously?

Yes, I need to turn on both simultaneously.  I plug my ethernet into one of our machines and then have a vendor remote into my laptop wirelessly.

Windows doesn't make it easy for you to have different processes access different networks simultaneously.

You can force it to prioritize one over another as so:https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-networking/wired-and-wireless-connection...
But it's all or nothing; you use either-or.

I know it's not a Windows thing.  On my HP laptop running XP, I just connected an ethernet cable to a managed switch on domain 1 and changed the LAN IP address to a static address, I then enabled my wireless and acquired access to domain 2.  I remember going into the Bios to set this up. 

I had searched for how to do this on the Lenovo once before and found that it wasn't in the Bios and I remember having to download some Lenovo utility (I believe SmartAdvantage) but I'm not sure.  There seems to be different SmartAdvantage modules, i.e. SA rescue and recovery, SA productivity, etc...

I'm pretty sure I had this working once before on the Lenovo...can't remember how.  Again, what I downloaded before is gone (Thanks IT dept)
