  1. Hey guys,
  2.  
  3. I'm running into an issue at work that I'm hoping you might be able to help me with.

  5. My laptop's running Mint 17 (currently). The Ethernet jack on my laptop connects to our corporate network. Unfortunately that means my internet activity also goes out that way and has an annoying tendency to filter and block me while trying to get to resources I need. So I have my wifi connected to a wireless network that bypasses all that for whenever I need to get to sites our IT department has blocked.

  7. I know in Windows you can order the interfaces so wifi would be above your local area connection, meaning your traffic would go out that way and still leave the lan connection active for the times I need to get to my corporate resources. The only way I've found to do that on linux is to hard set a static route. Do you know of a way in linux to set your wifi adapter as the default adapter so I can stop disabling my lan connection.

  9. Between LAS, Linux Unplugged, and Techsnap you guys pretty much are my morning and evening commutes. Looking forward to the next show.
