I have some devices I wish to monitor and administer which are on a physical network and not connected in any way to the outside world. I would like to be able to still browse the internet via my WiFi connection while the ethernet is connected to the network these devices are on but as soon as I enable my ethernet connection I can no longer see the outside world! How do I get Ubuntu to use the correct device/interface for the internet? Windows and OSX both just do this automatically!! As it is usually reported if a network is connected to the internet or not why does this not happen with Ubuntu?

Limiting my browser to only use one device or another will not suffice as most of the devices are monitored and administered over http web interfaces! Thus the browser needs to check both connections when an address is entered.
