I have a new Lenovo W541. At work I have both a cable connection with Proxy and a wifi connection. In my previous thinkpad pc I was able to switch from a connection to the other just by disabling and reenabling the proxy. In my new W541 this does not work. If the cable is plugged in, the wifi is automatically disabled. Even if I right click in Wireless Nework Connection and then enable wifi, wifi stays disable. Any suggestion? I searched online for some solutions and one of these was to right click in Wireless Nework Connection, properties, configure,power management and untick " allow the computer to turn off this devise to save power". But it did nothing. Another suggestion was to untick "allowed the wireless LAN radio to be turned off when inactive" within " the program Access connections. I downloaded Access connections (it was not preinstalled), unticked "allowed the wireless LAN radio to be turned off when inactive" but nothing happens. Any other suggestion? I really hate to have to plug and unplug any time the cable to switch connection.

As I said above I downloaded Access connections.
