    Wired to wireless switch


    I have a wired and wireless both network interfaces active on my laptop.
    Wired network is connected to LAN and Wireless is connected to DLinq adapter.
    Some times i like to use LAN and some times I want to use wireless. But whenever I want to change from wired to wireless and vice-versa I have to update the default route each time.

    Is there any option where i don't have to change this setting each time and OS takes care of this automatically.

    Which distro are you using? Are you using DHCP? What are you using to manage your wireless networks? If you're using DHCP, I'm pretty sure it should be setting that automatically.

    I don't use NetworkManager, but with WICD, you can set a script to run as well that could update the route for you.

    Hi thanks for the info.
    For LAN i am using a static IP address and for Wireless I am using DHCP.
    But when we change from Wired to wireless I have to update the route manually.

    Can you tell me more about WICD ?
