WHS - backup over ethernet instead of wireless? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My WHS has both wireless and ethernet cards installed.

    It is (of course) connected by ethernet to a lan port on my (wireless) router.

    I've discovered that is does backups over the wireless, and not the ethernet.

    Since the ethernet connection is a faster one, I'd like to "force" Whs to do backups over the ethernet connection, and not the wireless one. How can I do this?

    Thanks

  • Remove or disable the wireless connection.

  • Disabling is usually the fastest way, however it is also possible to rearrange the priority of the network connections in the network properties under Advanced/Advanced Settings.
