I have a problem regarding my EVDO wireless and my LAN connection. I want to use both connections at one time but I am unable to use both at a time. When I connect my EVDO wireless USB, my LAN connection gets disconnected or gets disabled. That's a big issue for me because my office works on LAN connection and it stops working when I use EVDO wireless.

Hi dear,

If you are getting disconnected from your LAN connection that means your LAN connection requires username and passwords to be connected to the network. Meanwhile all the wireless connections use authentication techniques that also require username and passwords to be connected to its own network. That is, if both the LAN and Wireless connections require username and passwords to get connected (which means they are using the same type of communication/authentication techniques and windows treats then “Similar” type of connection) then only one connection can remain active in the system. The other one will be deactivated automatically.

You are saying that your LAN connection gets disconnected when you connect with your EVDO wireless USB. But this should not happen if your LAN interface uses a static IP address, netmask, default gateway and DNS server information. That is, with a static configuration in the LAN Network Interface Card, your system won’t get disconnected when any wireless USB connection is established.

Conflict plays a major factor why either LAN or wireless connection loses Internet access when using both at the same time. Whoever has the strongest signal gets the access on the Internet. When wireless connection authenticate through wireless encryption code, the LAN drops Internet access. Mainly because of the way LAN settings have been configured. LAN might use a DHCP configuration that gets automatic IP Address form the Internet service Provider while if your using Wireless connection uses different set of settings.

You might using different settings when on LAN connection. Since your at work, most likely your network is on Static while WLAN is on DHCP. It is impossible to use 2 network connection at the same time however if they are in the same configuration then most likely, you'll use Wired and Wireless at the same time. They should not conflict with IP Address and the type of Internet protocol whenever the 2 are running.
