Qualcomm Wireless Network Card will not Automatically Switch from Wired to Wireless Networks when Connected / Disconnected from USB C Docks



Wired and Wireless Network Switching

When using USB C docks like the D6000, systems with the Qualcomm wireless network card do not automatically switch between the wired and wireless networks when connected and disconnected from these docks.

The following solution can be used to resolve this behavior:

  1. Update the Qualcomm WiFi Bluetooth driver from Dell.com/Support/Drivers.
  2. Open the Qualcomm Unified Wireless Application (from the Dell Driver folder).
  3. Select the option to "Disable wireless LAN when LAN is connected" (Figure 1, English only).

    Figure 1
  4. Add the Qualcomm Unified Wireless Application to the startup menu with a flag to minimize it.

    Windows 7
    1. In the start menu scroll down to the Startup folder.
    2. Right click => Open All Users.
    3. In the start menu scroll down to the Startup folder.
    4. Right click => Open All Users.
    5. Right click in the main panel => New => Shortcut to:
      "C:\Program Files(x86)\Qualcomm\Qualcomm Unified Wireless Suite\Wcct.exe" /min

    Windows 10
    1. Open a Run window (Win + R).
    2. Type shell:startup.
    3. Click OK.
    4. Right click in the main panel => New => Shortcut to:
      "C:\Program Files(x86)\Qualcomm\Qualcomm Unified Wireless Suite\Wcct.exe" /min

Advance users can create a batch file with the following script to achieve the same result:
Wcct.exe C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\startup \min
