As suggested here: How can I force Windows 7 to give my LAN (wired) conection priority over my WiFi?

enter image description here

... I checked that WLAN has higher priority over LAN.

Nonetheless when I plug-in the LAN cable (no Internet access over LAN) Chrome stops giving me from the good stuff.

Also netstat -rn seems to indicate that WLAN already has highest priority:

C:\Users\rvo>netstat -rn

Any ideas?

I set the WLAN interface metric from automatic to 5 as suggested here:

Somebody knows why this is necessary beyond defining the priorities?

  • Metrics is what defines the network "priority" as it were. A lower metric interface is used over an interface with a higher metric. – Lawrence Jul 16 '14 at 9:55
