    Removing an external virtual switch assigned to a wireless physical adapter can be really tricky, in some cases needing a reinstall of Windows before the switch can be re-created.
    Really I haven't had that problem, but... you remember the BIG one I had
    Although once I had to remove one by going to Device Manager, but that was only that one time.
    One odd thing I have noticed, I get one Mb more speed upload and download since I installed my V-switch.

    Does it make a difference if my computer is hardwired to the router? Just checking before I do anything else.

    This is what I mean Kari, how often does anyone actually get the full "Up to" plus more? Since I have the virtual switch installed, always. Is there a reason for this? before I was getting an average of 24/3.5-4

    Do you mean Ethernet? that's how mine is.

    Maybe hardwired isn't the right term . . . I have a wired connection running from my computer to the router. The rest of my equipment is wireless.

    That's how I am. The Virtual Switch is just for the PC it's set up on, it's a driver I believe, @Kari correct me if I'm wrong.

    Yes, except the modem connects to the router which then connects to the computer. Here's the Device Manager:

    First, my apologies. I quite often tell people to read the posts they are replying to more carefully before responding to avoid mistakes, wrong answers, yet I myself am often guilty of not reading the posts carefully. As for instance now:

    I checked Wynona's screenshot too fast and "decided" she is trying to create a duplicate wireless external switch, because the name she had given to the switch had the word WLAN in it (#1 in screenshot below).

    Had I checked the post and the screenshot better, I had noticed that although the switch was named as WLAN switch, it in fact is a LAN/Ethernet switch (#2):

    So, Wynona: Your existing external virtual switch is tied to your Ethernet (wired) network adapter. If this PC is connected to the network router with Ethernet, you do not need another external switch for the wireless adapter.

    If the PC has no wired connection to the router, if it is connected wireless, you need to create another external switch using your host computer's wireless NIC instead of the wired Ethernet switch.

    I have no proof, just what my eyes can see: I have made the same observation. I get almost always full download / upload speeds when using vEthernet adapters for my Internet instead of using the physical NIC. Why I cannot understand this is because the virtual vEthernet switch is as the name says just a virtual switch, all network traffic going through the physical NIC in any case.

    Good to know I'm not going crazy then. Thanks for the confirmation and answer Kari.

    No wonder you "got it wrong" Kari! I copied "WLAN" from your 'AGM External WLAN'.

    As you can see, I'm not a Networking Geek either.
