I've been without broadband over Christmas. }-(. The temporary fix is to stick a wifi dongle out of the window via a long USB cable and log onto my neighbour's wifi.

UB doesn't seem to appreciate having multiple wireless cards though and always tries to connect via my laptop's built in device - any idea how I can disable the internal one so leaving it to use the usb dongle?

I've just got a virgin install of Kubuntu 12.x.
