Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, Am using an HP ProBook 440 Laptop and whenever i plug the Ethernet cable in it automatically disconnect the WIFI and when I connect the hotspot it immediately get disconnected because the WIFI is disconnected immediately. i have tried to used some advice I got in the link bellow to run the bios and check the book that says LAN/WLAN Switching but the problem didn't get resolved.

the link I receive advice from is bellow:

https://support.hp.com/hk-en/document/c05821222 

Can you please advice me how to resolve this because I want my laptop to keep WIFI on when i connect the Ethernet cable so i can be able to Use the computer Hotspot.

Thank you

Hi:

 

If you have already disabled the LAN/WLAN Switching setting in the BIOS, see if this works...

 

Go to the Windows control panel>system & security>administrative tools> services.

 

Stop the "HP LAN/WLAN/WWAN Switching UWP Service" and change the startup to manual.

 

Now both the WIFI and ETHERNET should work at the same time

You're very welcome.

 

Sorry that didn't work for you.  Unfortunately, I don't have any other suggestions for you to try.

 

It has worked for other forum members with HP business notebooks, such as in this case.
