Welcome to the new AT&T Community
We've got a fresh look! Take the tour to see what's new.
My PC was originally connected to my Uverse home network via ethernet. That PC got replaced. Now I have a PC with both wireless and ethernet connectors. I have plugged in the Uverse eithernet cable and it recognizes the LAN connection when I look in the Windows 7 network and sharing panel in control panel. However, the PC always uses the wireless connection. Since I have the eithernet, I would prefer to use it.
I have tried to make it work by disabling the wireless connection then shutting down, plugging in the ethernet cable and rebooting. Doesn't work. The PC still comes up and connects to wireless automatically.
How can I set things up to connect to the ethernet connection by default?
Thanks for any help!
Thanks for the reply. I am actually on a Windows 7 64-bit system, and ahve wireless devices (Kindles, Blu-Ray players, Android tablet, etc.) that connect wirelessly but only the one PC as such.
Taking your advice, it appears that I am now properly conencted via ethernet! Thanks so much for your assistance!
Bring up your Network properties and uncheck the connect automatically box.
You will then default to the ethernet connection if available.
