When both my wireless and wired networking devices are connected, how can I
get my laptop to use the wired device and ignore the wireless one? I tried
specifying a higher metric for my wired device (via ifconfig metric), but it
doesn't seem to have an effect.
There are several ways of doing this. One is change the routing table
and another is turn off the wireless card.
Remove entry in routing table
1. check routing table
2. remove gateway line for wireless card
route del default gw 188.8.131.52 dev ethX
Turn off wireless card
ifconfig ethX down
