In my Windows 7 box I have an internal Ethernet board and a USB wireless connection. I use the wireless for Internet access, and it works great as long as the Ethernet board is disabled, but it fails when the Ethernet is enabled. I need the Ethernet connection to communicate with a local device (an embroidery machine).
I am guessing there is some setting I am missing. I was using the Ethernet for Internet access at one time (on Windows 7). I have an unattached building next to my house, I was paying for 2 cable modems, by putting a range extender of the modem in the house, and buying the wireless adapter for my shop desktop I am able to just pay for 1 service. But now I can't run the embroidery machine and be online. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
