Are there some ways to keep both ethernet and wifi connection on a android phone?

0 votes

There are two connection, ethernet and WiFi. Ethernet has higher priority than wifi, so connectivity service tears down the lower priority connection. The result is in wifi setting UI, the wifi shows "on", but no APs can be shown and mirracast also can not be used, as both wifi and p2p interface are disabled.

you can keep the connection, but you should maintain the route table by yourself.

There are some apps which can let you do that.
ideally if the stack allows Multipath TCP then you should be able to use both Wifi and 3G/4G.
AFAIK only Apple IOS Siri has multipath TCP implemented .
The android app I have mentioned is called super download.

I have Ubuntu 12.04 and I can connect to my Android device via USB. I installed MTP support and it works fine, as it seems.

Also, my Ubuntu computer and the Android device is connected to the Internet via WiFi. Is there an easy way to connect them to each other via WiFi for easy file sharing? A step by step instruction would be nice, as I am not even sure where to start.

The Settings application takes care of showing up an interface which helps to connect to a WIFI. Switching off the router will disconnect the phone from WIFI.
Now, on switching the router back on, who takes care of reconnecting to this WIFI automatically? Is it the Settings application or is it done at the framework level?
