RE: Activating wireless connection if wired is not active
I don't know if that's possible in Vista, but I'm curious why you would want
to. If your wired connection is faster than your wireless then Windows will
use the wired connection and leave the wireless mostly idle. If they are
roughly the same speed, you can manually set the interface metric on both
adapters to make sure wired is always preferred over wireless.
If you want to do that, right click on an adapter and choose properties.
Select TCP/IP v4 and click properties. Click the advanced button. Uncheck
the Automatic Metric box and enter in a number. The lower the number, the
higher the priority. Set your LAN adapter lower than your Wireless adapter
and it will always prefer LAN when both are connected.
