    Just wondering... which one will the applications use? :think:

    Is there any documentation about this? Can't seem to find it online.. :think:

    I think it will use both. Both devices will have it's own IP assigned.

    So, is there any priority on which to use first? For example, if I open Outlook to connect to MS Exchange, which one will the Outlook use? :think:

    Found out the other day when I connect my laptop to LAN, my Outlook was unable to connect to the Exchange server, so I enable the wifi, and it got connected. Guess the MIS must have blacklisted my LAN MAC address or something. :D

    no idea :think: i do know sometimes having 2 IPs screws your internet access of some applications but others might work fine

    Hmm.. I think it doesn't really matter. Outlook probably uses the first connected adaptor in the list, or whatever is initialized first.
