simultanious wired and wireless

Post by kristhor »

Hi running a newly installed mint 8 64 bit. I have 2 networks at home that i switch between, had mint 7 before mint 8 and sometimes I forgot to unplug the wired cable when switching to the wireless and the connection didnt work too well. Now in mint 8 ive noticed i can have wireless to network 1 and wired to network 2. I go online with a browser etc and everything works fine.... which network is connecting to the internet? both at the same time?? what information is goint through each connection. I can see in network manager they are both active and each have their own ip etc.

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

How about connecting both wired and wireless to the same network?
