Managing wired and wireless connections. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a client who wants to be able to use a wireless hotspot for backup internet when their main connection fails. 

    However when the  main internet fails, they can't always use the wireless connection they've set up while still being on the wired LAN. The workstation will ignore the wireless connection and attempt to connect to the internet via LAN.

    1. They need the LAN for networked printers
    2. They want to be able to use the wireless hotspot to connect to the internet.
    3. They want to be able to switch between connections without their users needing to change anything manually other than connecting to the wireless hotspot.

    I've been looking but I haven't been able to find any kind of software that manages network connections in this way.

    Is anyone able to suggest a solution?
