    Hi and welcome. I usually set my wireless to a fixed IP address.

    If there's any possibility of the wireless trying to connect when you have a wired connection, having them have the same manual IP address is a bad idea.

    None that I'm aware of. Any such tool would have to disable your wireless BEFORE you tried to connect to the wired connection with the same IP address, but I don't know of any such tool anyway.

    What kind of laptop do you have. There may be a wireless switching utility. Not sure if they work both ways, or just switch to wireless when a LAN cable is disconnected.
