Silly question re: LAC & Wireless both active.

    I have a laptop that I use as a desktop quite a bit. Well the last time I
    turned it back into a desktop I forgot to disable the radio function so now
    it is connected to the router via both Ethernet cable & WIFI. It never
    occurred to me that both could be active @ the same time but they are &
    appear to be working, although when I open up new web pages (according to the
    networking portion of the task manager) most all the activity appears to be
    going thru the LAC.

    So my question is: can I leave the wireless network card active while I have
    the Ethernet (LAC) plugged into the back of my laptop or should I be
    disabling the radio function every time I use the laptop as a desktop?

  2. In most cases, that is OK.
