I’ve tried lots of suggestions that i’ve found online for making your computer use the Ethernet as a default connection over my very ropey WiFi, but none of them have worked.
I have a pc that runs on Windows 10 and am really anxious to get it sorted.
The most common suggestion is to change the provider order in Advanced Settings, but the three possibilities listed don’t included WiFi or Ethernet. Instead, they’re Microsoft Windows Network, Web Client Network and Microsoft Remote Desktop Session Host Server.
Sometimes, when I switch the PC on, it automatically goes to Ethernet - happy days. But other days, like today, it’s useless WiFi.
Any suggestions would be very welcome. Many thanks, Cate
Caterm, following on from G's suggestion, head over to Settings -> Network & Internet -> WiFi. At the top of that page move the slider for your WiFi connection to the off position. It's as simple as that.
Many thanks for your suggestions. I had previously tried switching off the WiFi, therefore forcing the Ethernet connection to take priority but what I hadn’t realised was that I then needed to restart the computer. I have now down Both things and the internet - via Ethernet - is working consistently and successfully. Many thanks again, Cate
