This question already has an answer here:
I have the following issues / question. I use WIFI and Ethernet through each other like most people probably.
Certain things like ripping a blu ray I want to do through the Ethernet connection so that is when I plug it on.
However, I first have to turn WIFI off to "force" the mac to choose to route the data through the Ethernet connection.
In system settings under network / priorities I have the proper order, so Thunderbolt Ethernet above WIFI.
Any idea how I can make the Mac use the Ethernet cable without turning off the WIFI? THANKS!
