RE: two interfaces one subnet

Yes, similar happens to me all the time with both Windows Server 2008 and Vista with respect to 802.11 putting two interfaces on the same subnet (and LAN segment). I typically am never the wiser until I notice that a SMB connection had gone over to 802.11 first, because that associated before the wire was plugged in, causing data transfers on that connection to be much slower than on a hardline.

This is something that happens every day to a great many laptop users, I'd wager. Certainly not by any means up there in "does not work at all, period / incompatible with networking" land, as, at the very least, emperical evidence has a quite different story to say.
