Whenever I plug into a hard wired network, I disable the wireless connection on my machine. I heard from Eli long ago that Windoze could get confused when you had both, and in some cases even get so confused as to mess up the whole local network by creating a loop. I'm not sure if that was ever really true, and even if it was true from some early Win2k WiFi support it probably isn't true any more. Still, I'm paranoid and don't trust Windoze at all, so I keep doing it.

Ryan says it is true, so I'm not crazy to keep doing this. It should be fucking automatic though. Hey you have a good hard wire connection, turn off the fucking WiFi now.
