is that not stating that his eth0 is up and running already?
then, if yes, would not taking down his wifi so that the unit would then be "forced" to use the eth0 to get out would then take place?
because his wifi maybe taking precedence over his eth0
i know on Network mamager it had a selection for
right clicking on applet, un-select enable wifi, enable network is still in effect.
it is a simple try if you are running an applet such as that.
ip link set wlan0 down
comman line commandO on it even.
