    i have been running a home network for my laptop to connect through the network to the internet. I now also have a mobile broadband connection for the laptop. how do i tell the laptop to connect through the home network on the home wireless card as it always defaults to the mobile card even when the home wireless is connected. I have much more download capicity at home than I do on mobile

    Is it possible  to have multiple connection choices

     

    thanks

    You'll need to select the mobile broadband connection and disable it in order for the wifi connection to take precedence. There may be settings for your mobile broadband adapter or software to configure it to only connect if no wifi connection is available.
