    I am getting a lot of notebook that have two NIC (one wireless and another
    cable).

    I have some users that are just on the border of our wireless connection,
    and their wireless connection is unstable. Even if they plug their computer
    into the cabled network it seem that all their application run through the
    wireless NIC first then it tries the cable NIC. This is causing a problem
    with a couple of applications. It their away that I can setup their
    computers so that everything tries to run thorough their cable NIC first,
    and if the Cable NIC is not working it tries their wireless NIC
    automatically?

  3. Try this.

    1. Open the Network Connections folder.
    2. In the menu choose Advanced | Advanced Settings.
    3. Reorder the adapters in the Connections box so that the wired NIC is
    first.
