Auto disable wireless connection upon docking

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?UmF5bW9uZA==?=, Jan 6, 2005.

  1. We have many laptops in our organization the use wireless connections, they
    also have docking stations with a LAN connection. When they hot dock they
    are connected by both the wireless and the docking station. Is there a way
    for Windows XP to turn off the wireless when they are docked but turn it back
    on when the undock? I know you can set up hardware profiles but they will
    hot undock and still need connectivity. We are running out of IP addresses
    and we don't want to have to redo our IP scheme because of this. Any ideas??

    I just set up a new wireless network for my neighbour. When the computer is
    connected by Cat 5, it automatically switches adapters. Wireless is
    disabled and the Ethernet adapter becomes active. When the cable is
    unplugged it automatically activates the wireless and connects.
