Disable dongle(Mobile Broadband) when wired (ethernet) detected

    Question

  • We have 1000 windows 8.1 users in our organization. Cooperate users have connected to LAN using ethernet(wired). Sometimes they are connecting dongles and browsing internet through it.

    We need to disable Wired adapter if a dongle connects to the system.

    We need one network access at a time

    Can we do that?

    Also HP Elitebook provides this feature by default in the BIOS.

  • Hi,

    We have new laptops that are having this setting enabled in the BIOS and by default loaded with this settings.

    If you dont have budget you can always follow free scripts but do test it before you implement it.
