I have my wireless network setup at home and it works fine. I finally got my company issued multifunction center set up but it uses an ethernet cable. So whenever my ethernet cable is plugged in, my computer assumes that I am using a wired connection for my internet. Immediately after I unplug the MFC (ethernet) it connects to my wirelees network right away. I want to be able to turn on my computer, be connected to my network and my MFC without having to plug and unplug the ethernet cable all the time. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Calum
What you need to do is have your printer connected to a router.
Does your modem have more then 1 port in the back ? If yes then plug your printer into this and give the printer a fixed ip address. If your modem/router only has 1 port then you need to buy a router/switch.
