Default Mobile network offf when wireless on


I was wondering if you could help me.

I have a windows 8.1 tablet with a sim in.

basically what i want it to do is when i connect to WiFi i would like it to turn off the mobile broadband adapter, and once its off the WiFi to re-connect to the mobile. if this is possible i cant find anything about it anywhere

Windows already prefers free (WiFi) data over paid/metered (mobile) data whenever possible... you could probably tinker with the network adapter settings a bit further, if you wanted to, and you can definitely check the various settings on how Windows uses paid data, but nothing *should* be needed.

Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.

On this tablet. When we connect to a wifi it keeps the adaptor turned on which drains the battery. I can't see any settings to change this even in the vodaphone app
