We have some user PCs have both wired and wireless network connected at the same time.

The 'route print' shows these Windows machines are using the ether0 as the default route to go out, which is correct.

However when we use MS shared folder on these machines, we found all these traffics (port 137 and 445) are sending out via ethe0 using wireless IP as the source.

Dont know why this behavior happened...

Any suggestion is appreciated!

can you show a route print out of the PC that behaves this way. Its possible that these were broadcasts and used both interfaces. Did you sniff on both segments to see if you did see packets on both interfaces as source address.
