How do I use the internet with the ethernet cable plugged in? My ethernet cable is plugged in from the router, my internet works fine, but it still keeps connecting to the weak wireless connection instead. How do I switch over to the ethernet cable internet connection?

Hi
Have you tried disabling your wireless NIC on your computer/desktop/laptop. That way the only available and enabled networking interface would be your ethernet card.

Cheers

Check if you have a wireless switch/button on your laptop for that purpose. That's much easier than doing it within windows

Yeah, I'll go with Bishop on this one. Try using the button. It's the easiest way to turn the wireless NIC off.
