    So I'm just wondering, if I have Airport turned On and a CAT5 ethernet cable plugged in, What does the computer default to the Wifi or the cable as its main connection to the internet?

    I usually just turn off airport when i plug in a ethernet cable, but i was wondering if it at all matters? When i plug in the cable I usually download overnight so I want a more reliable connection that will not disconnect during the middle of the night.
