I've got an old Toshiba Satellite P30 with XP Home on it. I've not used it much lately but to keep the wife away from my main machines I thought I'd give it a 'spring clean' and let her use it.
It's now got 2GB RAM with a clean install of XP thanks to the restore CD. Norton Internet Security was replaced by Microsoft Security Essentials and Office 2007 installed.
Rather than use the inbuilt 802.11g wireless adapter it's now got a Netgear Win51B 802.11n cardbus adapter to connect to a Netgear N300 Wireless ADSL2+ modem router. When it's next to the router a LAN cable can also provide connectivity.
What I can't understand is why when both means of connectivity are available it always uses wireless rather than the local area connection.
I've poked about and searched the web but found nowt. Any ideas please?
