After installing debian 6 it was found that it prefers built in wireless

The wire connection was inserted and available.

The wireless connection works ok at 55% but I would prefer wired connection.

Fedora, centos, mandriva prefers wired connection on installation.

Could there be a reason for debian's behaviour.
When you say "inserted and available" do you mean just plugged in, or
actually working in Debian?  Could it be that the wired ethernet card
was not recognized and/or no driver was loaded?  Does the wired
interface work if you turn off the wireless manually?


Good day,
Was installing debian 6. Went through the fases answer the questions.
It whent on and installed about 1200 files without asking the wireless password.
Now I think it must have used the wired connection.
When I rebooted (first reboot after install) it was found that the wireless connection was used.

It will not auto configure eth0. I can not manually configure eth0.
I can not answer required questions.

Point of interest. Fedora 14 and Mandriva 2010.2 was able to configure and use
 (1) Wired  (2) Wireless and (3) Mobile broad  on the same machine.
They are all installed on separate external USB drives on same machine..
Just switch cables to boot other distro.

When debian 5.06 was used it connected to the wired connection.
Did not upgrade (never upgrade) do fresh install always.

Something must have changed.
Thanks
Johan
