I want to use a laptop with wifi a connection as main internet connection for Ruckus R500. Numerous issues - I cannot seem to get 2 network cards on my W7 pro laptop to work at the same time. As soon as I plug into the rj45 jack, the wireless connection gets disabled. I am on DHCP.....I have to use this configuration due to the fact that I will be using this system in different locations with only wifi for internet, and I need internet to have my Audio Everywhere device work as I wish.....A detailed explanation would be great. I have 2 days to get this working, I would be willing to pay for expert advice. Thank you.

Does this MS community reply help?  https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-networking/prefer-ethernet-cable-over-wi...
I would suggest to "disable" the Eth port if you don't want this built-in "feature" from Microsoft.  Please let us know if this works for you?
