Option to deactivate WLAN adapter when connecting ethernet cable

I used a HP CQP 6900P as my private laptop before, now I am using T520 company laptop and trying to find the option to disable the WLAN adapter when connecting a ethernet cable. On my HP I had to enable this feature in the WLAN adatper settings, but I can't find such setting in the T520 WLAN adapter settings. Does anyone know how to activate this setting? Is there a driver I can use that enables this setting?

 

Thanks

Robert

Re: Option to deactivate WLAN adapter when connecting ethernet cable

To do that you need Access Connections.  You can create a profile that will deactivate the WLAN radio when you connect to ethernet.
