  • Changes required to use Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi

    I have two Raspberry 3 model B+ feeds sending data via Wi-Fi and I wish to stop the Wi-Fi and use an Ethernet connection.

    Can someone advise me please on what changes are required to the Raspberry; thank you

    Plugging in a cable and restarting.

      Thanks Oblivian....

      I therefore assume that there is nothing to be done to disable the wi-fi ? That plugging in the ethernet cable disables the wi-fi ?

      Thank you

        Thank you
        When Network cable is plugged in, both WiFi & Ethernet connections are working and available, but Ethernet (cable) is used as default connection.
        If you want to turn off WiFi, give this command. However this is temporary and on reboot, the WiFi will start again.

        STOP WiFi
        Code:
        sudo ifconfig wlan0 down

        START WiFi
        Code:
        sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
        For permanent method, please see this:
