I am looking for a laptop. I would like both an ethernet and wireless connections. My Q, is it possible to have both of those utilized at the same time, but not to the same place? I am not an expert with network connections. My home is hardwired, and I don't have wireless. I just want it for outside the home, etc. Thanks. Hope this makes sense.

You can have both on your machine, but I don't think you can have both active at the same time. If the wireless is on without an ethernet connection, it'll work. If the wireless doesn't see a network, but the ethernet does, the connection will be via the wire.
