    wireless and wired connections

    I have a wireless router (Dlink DI524) that comes with 4 wired ports. I also have two computers that have both Cat5 cables AND wireless network adapters connected to this router. My question is when I transmit files between the two computers; which connection will be used by the system? Just the cable or the wireless connection, or both?

    Thanks

    Re: wireless and wired connections

    The simple answer is "it depends which network connection you have enabled"!
    In almost all circumstances I would say the wired connection would be the faster.

    If you then ask what happens if you have enabled both, I'm afraid I don't know -- but someone else will...

    Re: wireless and wired connections

    I have a similar configuration. By default the Wireless connection seems to get used. You can change this from
    <UL><LI>Control Panel > Right click Network Connections > Open
    <LI>Advanced > Advanced Settings...
    <LI>Adapters and Bindings tab
    <LI>Connections (the top half of this tab)
    <LI>Move Local Area connection to the top
