I want to connect my laptop to a wired local network (no Internet access, just access to my other PCs and Home Server) while also maintaining a working connection to my university's wireless Internet. When I plug the Ethernet cable into my laptop after it has established a working connection to the school Internet, Windows 7 displays that it has an Internet connection with the WiFi, and none with the local network, as I would expect.
However, Internet access during this time does not function. It loads for a while (less than 15 seconds) and then tells me it has no Internet access in a web browser. My home network is labeled a 'home' network in Windows 7, and the WiFi as 'public'.
Can I have my PC prioritize the WiFi connection for Internet access and use my wired connection for simple local networking? Or do I just have to pick between Internet access and backing up my computers on the local network?
