Searched for this answer on the site, but it looked to be only applicable for mac OSX. If there is one that I missed, please link, and I'll vote to close.
In a nutshell I have a laptop running windows vista, which is currently connected to the internet via the wireless network that exists in the house, using the wireless adapter that came preinstalled. However when I plug in the network cable to connect to the local switch that allows me to connect to my local file server, the laptop doesn't seem to know which way to go to get to the internet. How can I tell it to always take a particular adapter to get to the internet?
EDIT: If instructions aren't the same, knowing how to do this via windows 7 will be handy since I'll be upgrading to it in a few weeks.
