We found that while connecting to the docking station, the connection still appeared as Wi-Fi instead of LAN for an unknown reason. It looks like the LAN is still considered low matric than Wi-Fi. Please note that Kira’s laptop doesn’t have a dedicated LAN port.
Play around with metric value on network connection for LAN/Wi-Fi, it didn’t work properly cause the IP address sets to dynamic not static so the value will get reset again.
Alternatively, we update the Wi-Fi drivers from the Toshiba website for this particular model. It looks like the behavior is normal now. We also asked the user to keep an eye on the icon logo on the taskbar (Wi-Fi and LAN).
