Sprint AirCard and WLAN together

Specs: Windows Vista, not relevant
I have both cable and sprint. I normally use just the cable (wirelessly) and everything works just fine. HOWEVER. I also use Sprint via an AirCard (when I am out of the house, traveling, or when the main power or internet service on cable is down).

When I use the AirCard to regain internet access when the Cable is down (which, by the way is seldom) It warns me that I must disable the WLAN (the one that connects me to my network drives, cable internet, etc.), effectivle isolating me from my network drives. Is there anyone with experience using two or more of these connection types at THE SAME TIME? What are the repercussions, say, if I don't disable the WLAN in an effort to retain access to the network drives (although there is no internet available during those times via that specific connection)? OR - am I going about this wrong? anyone have any better suggestions? -Dusty

The issue is that you can't really have two internet connections at the same time. (for most cases)

You might be able to just remove the gateway ip from your cable so that local private IP addresses can be accessed.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
