Connect Using Wireless And Wired LineConnect Using Wireless And Wired Line


Just a simple question. I have a router provided by the internet supplier. Its a shared network. My neighbour is using with wireless connection. And I want to access the network through Eternet cable. Is it possible. I can see both the options in the router. But I find it difficult to set connection with internet cable. Please provide me a solution.

Microsoft can do itConnect Using Wireless And Wired Line

I think microsoft XP can do it, wireless on my laptop for connect to internet, and wired network use static ip connect to router (setting up router and browsing), wired and wireless can running together, but when I use mint julia, wireless for internet but when I connect cable to wired port, wireless is disconnect

connecting both wireless and ethernet on a laptopConnect Using Wireless And Wired LineIt is possible. Right now I have that same setup. Now while it appears to work, sort of, the wireless connection on the map shows it is intermittent connection at best. It connects and recognizes the connection. Even has a separate IP address per DHCP, but it only connects once in a while, probably if a packet or two drops during the link of the Ethernet cable. I have tried bridging them together within windows networking tools, but then my router does not recognize them due to "IP address conflict" so I delete the bridge and they reconnect as separate connections again. It does not really help bandwidth, except for possibly hogging some of it or bumping other machines which have to fight for wireless bandwidth more (since some of them are game consoles which hog lots of bandwidth for some reason). That and people seem to want to use bandwidth for streaming music all the time, like on their phones. I have cut the usage down a bit by cutting off all the bluetooth access, but with the small router I have (a home router) it does not give me the flexibility I need to limit bandwidth for specific machines and more evenly distribute access. This is becoming a huge problem. Since I have to use streaming video, I get a lot of drops in bandwidth which annoy me to no end.Anyone got any ideas? I'm in control of the router, so I can make changes, but like I said the flexibility leaves a lot to be desired. It only allows me to limit the usage to time brackets (like between the hours of 6am and 8pm) for each client, not throughput.

Best way to do this would be to have the cable plugged into each of the laptops, then specify each computer with a different IP address than your wireless network (This will allow you to open the computer you want to transfer to/from by going to //IPADDRESS rather then the computer name..

This is the method I use to transfer files between my two laptops using their inbuilt gigabit cards..

Hope this helps

Connect Using Wireless And Wired LineConnect Using Wireless And Wired Line

I had a similar problem, I use wireless to get on the internet but I had files I wanted to access on a network storage device via a router that I only use for a LAN (no internet on it).

I'd get online with wifi, and as soon as I plug my ethernet cable in to access the files on the LAN, windows would set that as a preferred connection for almost all internet related programs.

The trick was to use the NET CHANGE command to change the metric number for the LAN route to a higher one than the route created for the wireless connection to the internet. That told windows to use the wireless connection first.

 Hope that helps.

Lan and Wlan at the same timeConnect Using Wireless And Wired Line

Can someone tell me if I can be connected to lan and wlan at the same time, I have a lan card and a wlan card. The lan network has 20 cpu in it and it's own shared internet connection. Is there a way not to use this internet (I've tired to delete the dns nubers) but the two internet connections are still presen. I can connect one at a time, but I need them both.

ah yes and this is all in windows xp, someone told me that it's possible in linux

yeeaaaConnect Using Wireless And Wired Line

Well actually larger networks use multiple NIC's, like the labs here at my college. I also have the desire to use wireless and ethernet to "double" my speed. I found that being connected to the ethernet on my laptop and then enabling the wireless will cause my local download speeds to go from 10-20MB to literally a few KB. You would think by now that computers would automatically use every connection it has as much as it can, but it does not appear this way.

wireless internet via router 1, file transfers via wired lan router #2 home network?Connect Using Wireless And Wired Line

I totally hear your problem buddy. I am running3 computers on a wireless router. I also want to transfer files to a centralized pc which has the most hard drive space. From the laptop. Both are on Wireless via router. I have another router of which I'm hoping I can sit both side by side and transfer files from the laptop to the pc(server) via 2nd router running cables rather than wireless. I am wondering as well if this is possible? Will the Laptop and PC both be able to resume internet connections via the wireless router and assume file sharing abilities with the 2nd wired router? If anyone has an answer to this please post

Hi, is it possible for me to use both my wireless and wireline connections at the same time? I'm primarily online using my wireless PC card for the laptop. But sometimes I want to transfer some big files over to the other laptop I have in the house. Doing this through the wireless card takes ages since I'm also using the internet and the wireless transfer is limited to 54Mbps...in the ideal world :mellow:

I want to use a network cable and connect between the two laptops using that method. That way it "should" give us almost twice the speed if this is possible.

Can it be done? If so, what do I need to do?

Both laptops are using Windows XP Home Edition.


Sorry replying so late.
Yes, this is perfectly possible.
Simply be careful, if you want to use two different network adapters (your wireless and your wireline) they must be on different logical networks.
I guess that your wireless adapter's IP settings are in DHCP mode, and if you type "ipconfig" in a CMD window you will probably see that your IP address is something like
So, you can use your wired connexion with a crossed cable between your PC and your laptop for faster file transfers. Simply, manually set your IP address of your wired NIC's on a different network, I would choose for the first laptop and for the second laptop.
And no gateway on the 192.168.110.* network, the default gateway will be on the wireless network.
I hope that this was clear enough, else do not hesitate asking more info.
