    please clarify: are you changing clients [say c41W to c61k]? or Internet connection ?

    I wouldn't worry - routing table of HR54 will assign high priority to wired interface and all traffic will go there; think of hot WiFi connection as a backup

    Given that both interfaces will be on the same network, routing tables do NOT enter into it. It is either/or, so there has to be some way to tell it to switch. I presume you go into the network menu and there's a way to tell it.

    It shouldn't be that - who will assign SAME net to both interfaces ?!

    Hi All
    I ran the System Info test this morning and all is well. Wireless is not connected, so it looks like it takes awhile for everything to be sorted out. I checked out On Demand and its working.

    well, lets see routing table from such device, perhaps it will use it both IF with correct info
