Network: Card-1: Intel PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN [Shiloh] Network Connection driver: iwlwifi
Card-2: Intel 82567LM Gigabit Network Connection driver: e1000e
They both work fine and dandy in linuxmint 13, except that, when both are available the following happens.
The network icon in the systray is the wired one. When I turn the wireless connection on the wireless led turns on and I get a message saying it connected. Then the wireless led flashes from time to time indicating activity on the wireless link.
route reports the following

Wouldn't it be better just to ignore the wireless capability when the wired connection is running? Or to connect once only to see if it happens to be the same network and then remember that such an ssid is connected to such a wired connection?
