When I'm connected to both LAN and wireless, I prefer that LAN be used since it's much more faster.

However, from Task Manager, I'm seeing that wireless is being used all the time. I saw the other link : where I need to change the metric.

I've changed both IPv4 and IPv6 metric numbers for both my LAN and wireless to the following values


LAN :10

What am I doing wrong and how do I get to use the LAN?

P.S : BTW, sometime back using the LAN made my downloads way faster but something has happened in the last few months.

Go to Control Panel>Network and Sharing Center>Change adapter settings. Then in the menu (Hold ALT down if you don't see it), click Advanced>Advanced settings and move the wired connection to the top.
