Re: How to configure network connection to use Ethernet instead of wifi?


Well, do you mean when wifi if off, even if nvda read my wifi ssid in the system bar, it is still using Ethernet connection?

If your WiFi is turned off it's off, what you see is your Ethernet connection, I see this as well on all my work PC's, but I did the same thing, WiFi is turned off and of course if it's off then it's off and it obviously can't connect. I wouldn't bother doing anything else and I see little point in trying to forget the network and all that.

Go in to control panelk, network.
You should see a list of networks if you click connect to a network.
You should be able to move to the network and right click to choose forget on your wifi connection.

At the very begining of setting up my Win10, I have connected to my home wifi.

Later, I have connected my pc to Ethernet cable.

But now, even I have manually turn off the wifi button in setting, I can still see the wifi ssid in the system bar icon.

so, how can I make win 10 connect to Ethernet instead of wifi?

and how can i forget the wifi connection?
