Hi guys,

Probably something easy but my brains are fried.

Background :
A network has about 6 machines connected to it with no internet connection
3 machines connected to wireless router which has internet.

Forsome reason, the machines that have both network connections, use the wired connection to access internet no matter what.
When I disable the wired connection, it uses the wireless internet connection.

How do I run both networks without disabling any, but tell the machines to use the wireless connection when needed to access internet?

Thanks a million in advance
