How does a windows laptop choose which internet connection to use?

When you have both wired gigabit ethernet and a wireless network connection active is there anyway to tell which NIC your laptop is using to access the network, or can you prioritize the connections?

 

I'm currently using a Latitude E6410 with Windows 7 installed, but this is something I've always wonderd about.

Simmonsjasond,

Thank you for using the Dell Community Forum.

If you are connected using a wired connection and a wireless connection your system should be using the wired connection first.
