Dell E6320 Disable Wireless while connected to LAN

This question is not answered

I would like to turn off the wireless card when our e6320's are connected to a LAN via docking station or direct Ethernet connection. I found the BIOS setting called Wireless Radio Control. I did check both boxes for WLAN and WWAN. This functions as expected if the laptop is running and connected to wireless and I connect an Ethernet cable the wireless disconnects. But when I start the laptop and it is connected to an Ethernet cable the wireless connection does not disconnect unless I unplug the Ethernet and then reconnect the Ethernet cable. Is there something else I am missing? Or does this setting just work from connection of Ethernet and not from start-up? Thanks in advance. I am running the newest BIOS for this machine A12 and Windows 7 SP1 Enterprise 64-bit.
