When I work at my desk, my laptop (a 2021 macbook pro) is plugged into a thunderbolt dock with an ethernet interface that's connected to my wired network. I am also connected to wifi. Sometimes, a meeting will run longer than expected, and I'll want to move somewhere else in the house to work, meaning I need to unplug the thunderbolt cable, thus disconnecting me from the wired connection. When I do this, it takes a few seconds to switch over to using wifi only. Most of the time, this is fine, but if I'm on a zoom meeting, the delay is long enough that I drop from the meeting for a few seconds, which is disruptive. Is there anything I can do to tell my computer to start sending traffic over wifi only before unplugging the thunderbolt cable, so that the transition happens more seamlessly? I've tried setting the interface to inactive in system settings before unplugging, but even then, it takes several seconds to switch over.
I know I can switch to wifi before my meeting starts and avoid this problem, but if it's already too late, and I'm in a meeting and want to move to another room, is there anything I can do to avoid the blip while macOS figures out that the wired connection is gone?
