    Hi all,

    i have two nics installed. i want my cable nic to be used first and then my
    WIFI nic to be used, i know you can change the order in network connections
    but it reverts on occassion., Where do i find this key in the reg and what do
    i need to alter to ALWAYS have the cable nic as "default"? I am going to
    script the needed chnages in kix to have less probs (i have 500 laptops with
    same issue)

    really appreciate ANY help.

    I've had pretty good luck with setting an 'Interface metric' of 1 on the
    preferred network, and higher value on the secondary network, such as 10 or
    whatever. I think you can only go 99 though. I can't remember. This is in
    addition to setting the order of access in Advanced Settings.

    Don't get too excited if it doesn't work right away. Set it and leave it
    alone for a day or two before deciding it doesn't work. Sometimes these
    things mysteriously start working, hmmm...
