    In laptops: how to decide to receive internet connection?


    In laptops: how to decide to receive internet connection (Wi-Fi, SIM or Ethernet cable)

    I couldn’t figure out how the internet connections can be enabled\disabled. For example, how to decide to receive the internet connection by Ethernet cable but not by Wi-Fi or SIM?

    Thank you

    Best

    Very much appreciated Brink. It works fine. I could re-arrange the internet sources depending the screenshots you have generously provided
