I have a windows 7 laptop and when I connect it the a wired connection it disables the wireless & 3G connections, but when I unplug the cable it doesn't renable the connections, I have to go into the network connections and select each one and renable it again.

It is getting very annoying.

After testing yesterday it still isn't working, you have to go into the device manager to enable the device again.
