    how to go from WiFi Connection to Ethernet in Win10 Home?


    Good morning,

    Last night I had to do a clean install of Windows 10 Home because of some corrupted files. While in the process of setting up I selected to connect to the Internet with my 'Wifi' connection. Prior to reinstalling Win 10 I had always used my 'Ethernet' connection

    My Ethernet is still wired but I can't figure out how to enable that and disable my 'wireless' connection?

    Any easy to understand directions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks and regards,

    Once you plug in the ethernet cable it should switch over from wifi to LAN automatically.
