    Intermittent wireless connectivity problems


    I have a PC and a tablet, both of which have Windows 8.1 installed, and are regularly updated. I prefer using the wireless connection on my PC, although I do have an active wired connection. Is there a setting somewhere that disables the wired connection automatically when the wireless is active, and also switches back to wired if the wireless disconnects? I have looked into Group Policy Editor at the wireless and wired LAN settings under Network Connections, but don't see any setting to do this automatically.

    That is the Administrator page for Proset tools. Only installed, if you select that feature, when installing Proset tools for an adapter with a Intel chipset.
