The duration for temporarily disabling a wireless connection when a wired LAN connection becomes available, to provide time for the OS and Nomad to switch to the LAN connection. This is useful for OS versions and drivers that do not automatically switch to a preferred wired connection.

Nomad provides extra stability by managing a machine's network connections as they move between a wireless and a wired LAN. Depending on the OS version or other factors, once an SMB or HTTP session is running on a wireless connection, it will remain on wireless even when a wired LAN becomes available. Nomad uses WLanBlipSecs to temporarily drop a wireless connection when it detects a wired LAN connection, to give time for the OS and Nomad to automatically switch to the LAN connection.

For example, if a Nomad master was initiated when a machine was on a wireless connection and a wired connection subsequently became available, Nomad disables the wireless adapter for a long enough period to enable a switchover to the wired connection. As a result of this, the IP address and the share path will change and peers will log error messages until each peer re-establishes its connection to the master and the new share location.

This feature is turned off by default.

Other applications may be affected when switching from wireless to wired connection.

Irrespective of the WLanBlipSecs setting, you can also control which service set identifier (SSID) Nomad connects to by managing a list. To do this, update the NomadBranch WLanProfileList registry value with a comma-delimited list of SSIDs or use the wildcard (*) character for any SSID.

Examples:

WLanProfileList REG_SZ WIFIGAP,GUEST
WLanProfileList REG_SZ *
