Network Priorities

Friday, August 24th, 2012

Most attorneys at law firms use laptops as they are working from various locations.  They typically will be connected via wifi when working out of hotels, airports, or client offices as it is the most convenient.  The potential problem with this is when they are back in the office, typically on a docking station, working locally.  When a computer has both a lan (wired) and a wifi (wireless) connection, it must choose which one to use.  This especially becomes an issue when both are the same network (meaning both are the office network and the office wifi).  The computer has two potential paths to a server and it has to have a way to decide which ones to use.  By default it will always choose the wifi.
