    Hello, Thank you for posting in Q&A forum. Please kindly follow below steps to achieve the purpose: 1.Open GPO Editor and navigate to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Network > Wired Network Policies. 2.Enable the policy “Minimize the number of simultaneous connections to the Internet or a Windows Domain”. 3.Open registry editor and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WcmSvc\Local. 4.Create or modify the DWORD value named fMinimizeConnections and set it to 0. 5.Reboot the machine. After these configurations, your machine will not connect to WLAN when has LAN connection already. To help other customers who may be facing the same issue, please don't forget to vote if the reply is helpful. Best Regards, Hania Lian
