Auto-disable AirPort when ethernet is active
Authored by: bert2d2 on Feb 03, '11 08:36:16AM

Thanks for this great tip, as we have a lot of different machines, I am not sure we can apply the scripting solution.
I do however have this weird behaviour:
- when on airport-only i make a connection to a file-server
- if I then copy a large file: it is very slow
(so far normal behaviour)
- when I connect my ethernet-cable, I get an ip-address and also the service-order of this connection is higher than the airport connection
- If I then copy the large file again: it still is very slow
it's like the connection to the server is still on airport

When I disconnect and re-connect the server:
the file-copy goes fast (on ethernet-speed that is)

I suppose the server-session-connection (what's in a name) is still on airport, while the ethernet-connection is up-and-running.

Is this normal os-x behaviour?
Can I change it?
Can I reset the server-connection in some way (via a script?) without having to put user-name and password?

Any help would be gladly appreciated!
