    Here's how to accomplish this on Windows 7

    The above link describes how to use WiFi and Ethernet together where local file transfers use ethernet instead of wireless. It's for Windows 7 but I guess Windows 10 is the same or very similar.

    I'm going to try it out now.

    I was wondering if it's possible to utilize both WiFi and ethernet in tandem. I'm pretty sure some of you are going to tell me that I can only access the internet through one of these, up to my bandwidth limit, but that's not what I mean.

    I'd like to access the internet through my WiFi connection, yet have a wired connection through my router to access the files on the other computers in my house. Is this even possible?

    I have recently set up a desktop PC, with windows 10 pro. it has onboard wireless and LAN adapters, I have plugged in the LAN and I am also able to sign in on the wifi adapter. Thus both the WIFI and the LAN are working.
    I have not tried checking speeds or routes however.
    This was my original experience till I tried it on my Toshiba Portege laptop which will disconnect wifi on connection to LAN.

    I understand this post is a little late, but yes this is possible by modifying your local routing table. Easy peasy. Do some research on that subject and if you still can't figure it out you can find me at
