Hi Folks.

I have a HP Laptop & my internet is through BT Hub.

My default connection to the hub is a wireless one. If i connect the ethernet cable from Laptop to Hub will this overide the wireless connection or do i have to manually change the setting ??

If so, how i do i change the setting ??

You should not have to do anything other than connect the wire

Yes it may be faster

to a hard wired one. Speed was marginally better, around 10%.
