    I have a hard wired LAN connector from my PC plugged into my router. I also
    have a wireless PCI card in the same computer configured to talk to said
    router.
    This is probably a simple question, but it's late, and I can't think
    straight.
    If both adapters are working, how do I know which one the PC is using? Is
    there a way I can specifically have it use a specific one other than
    disabling the other?
    Thanks.

    Thanks, that's what I was looking for.
    I often wondered what that metric setting was for.
