    10 Home x64 (1709) (10 Pro on 2nd pc)

    Glad it seems to be working now.

    When I had Anniversary Update 1607 on my PC, inserting an Ethernet cable to my router would disconnect the WiFi connection. The WiFi would automatically reconnect when the Ethernet was disconnected. There was no way to reconnect the WiFi while the Ethernet was connected.

    Now I'm on Creators Update 1703 the WiFi still disconnects when I plug the cable in, but I can now manually reconnect the WiFi and have both in use at the same time - not that that gives me any speed advantage, the WiFi on its own is capable of faster speeds than my broadband can deliver.

    Hi,
    For DELL computers, wifi usage,when cable is connected, You can manage in BIOS under Power Management > Wireless radio control.

    Does Windows 10 still have BIOS? I thought it was something else now.
    Experts to the scene, please!

    Windows 10 'has' whatever is in your PC's hardware/firmware. Older machines have BIOS, newer use UEFI. How-To Geek explains...
    What Is UEFI, and How Is It Different from BIOS?

    Something seems odd. I just noticed that with Ethernet disabled with no cable connections in either router or computer port, and WiFi active, there is still a X visible in Control Panel Network Connections.

    Day before yesterday had numerous dropped DSL incidences too. All is utterly confusing.

    Xstable tois gone now. Would anyone like to comment on the DSL drops? All seems stable today. I have also noticed that upstream SNR is about the same as downstream, whereas before the upstream was a lot higher, by day 4 dB.

    Comment please!
