    Via 620
    G'day all.

    I have a TomTom Via 620 and every time I connect through usb to my laptop it disconnects my wifi and acts as a network adaptor. @#$#%#!!!!

    Operating system is Windows 7.

    I've tried ?almost? everything to address this but so far no luck.

    Can some one give me a hand with this one please. Much appreciated. :)

    The gist of that change recommended by mvl is to make your TomTom look SO slow in comparison to your WiFi 'network adapter' that it ceases to be preferred as a connection device to the outside world. Higher number = presumed slower connection.
