Solved Wireless and Wired network bridge

October 26, 2012 at 10:23:15
Specs: Windows 7
We have a WIRED network and a WIRELESS network at work. I start downloading a big file over the wireless network. I realize that it is slow, half way thru the process. Is there any way, I can set up the network, such that, DURING the file transfer process, I can switch from wireless to wired, without any disruption?...

✔ Best Answer
You can not switch between the two during a download normally.
Perhaps with a download manager you could but its doubtful
You could switch BEFORE you start the download.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

You could switch BEFORE you start the download.

I couldn't agree more.

Wireless is what it is....a convenience. Wireless presently cannot, and probably never will, be able to provide the same performance as a wired connection.

Since you've already figured out that big downloads go slowly over a wireless connection, the logical (and smart) thing to do would be to follow wanderer's advice and just do the big downloads on a wired connection. Problem solved.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

There is no need for switching. This is just like my own case I use both wired and wireless whenever I am on desk, so with this my download is smooth and running.

If you require both a wired and wireless connection, you could setting your ethernet adapter to a higher priority than your wireless adapter. In the Network and Sharing Center click change adapter settings, hit ALT, click on Advanced, then Advanced Settings. Move your ethernet adapter above your WLAN adapter.
