Access Connections: prioritize network cards

Hi,

until now I used AC only to configure and use a mobile (3G) connection on the laptop. Now, I would like to know if it's possible to use it so to, when an ethernet connection's established, disable the Wi-Fi card or, at least, not to use it (if a Wi-Fi connection's active).

At a first glance, AC doesn't have this feature, but I might miss something!

Thanks

Re: Access Connections: prioritize network cards

just read this:

and so indeed I was missing something.  At this point I wonder: for my "basic" case, wouldn't it be better to have a single profile, binding the ethernet card as primary, rather than 2 profiles? (even if we do have gateway assigned on the ethernet interface).

 

thanks!

Yes you should create only one profile ( multi-adapter ).
