Hi,

My laptop randomly disconnects from the LAN connection and jumps onto the wifi connection.
Its annoying due to the fact in-between the swap i have no connection and therefore get kicked from any game im playing during that time, and download speeds are hindered.


Does anyone have and ideas on what the issue could be or how to fix? thanks

First thing to swap is ALWAYS the cabling. Since it is a laptop, carry it near the main router and plug it directly in. Does it still behave the same?

I would need to test it over a few hours, as it works most of the time regardless. But from time to time it drops connection and refers back to WIFI

What network hardware (including cables) make up the path to the primary router today ?
The point of moving close to the primary router and using a single cable is to eliminate all other network hardware.
