generic question : wireless network behaviour while having wired connectivity to client PC

Hi,

We have set-up in such way that client uses both wired and wireless connectivity to their laptop.

Therefore they get two IP addresses to their laptop. some of the client complains that if they are running any application and in middle of the session if they remove wired connectivity , they get disconnected from the application even they have wireless connectivity during that time.

Suppose , any client is connected to both wired and wireless as i mentioned above, Even internet page also will have to refresh after disconnecting the wired connectivity since it re-establish the connectivity with wireless.

wired and wireless subnets are different subnets

As i understood , whenever client is having both the connection , user will be connected to any application session with wired IP address and that IP address will act as a source ip address in IP header but when they disconnect the cable , obviously , client will have reestablish the sesion since source ip address will be changed and same thing happens with http request.

Please correct me if i am wrong.

Re: generic question : wireless network behaviour while having w

actually it depends on the connection. If you have 300M wireless and only 100M wired then the wireless will be preferred by default. You can do a route print in the windows cli to see which will be preferred based in the metric.

But in Essence you are correct, when you disconnect one, the adapters will rebind and cause a blip in service.

Re: generic question : wireless network behaviour while having w

I faced the similar issue long time back.

The solution is to use the root command on Windows CLI.

e.g.

route ADD 157.0.0.0 MASK 255.0.0.0  157.55.80.1 METRIC 3 IF 2

        destination^      ^mask      ^gateway     metric^    ^

                                                    Interface^

If IF is not given, it tries to find the best interface for a given

gateway.
