comment Force network-manager to use wireless for an Internet connection
This change sounds like it will not suit. I need the wired connection to maintain consistent IPs for the host and virtual machines so they are all on the wired network (VM bridged adapter). The only way I can connect to the internet is via wireless.

comment Force network-manager to use wireless for an Internet connection
This method did work for me. I plugged in the router that doesn't have an internet connection. I created the new connection and copied the MAC address to the new connection. I changed from eth0 to the new connection but was not able to connect to the internet. I also tried another wireless connection (sim card type) but still no connection.

I tried this but I still cannot connect to the internet. When I plug the laptop into the router that doesn't have an internet connection it gets an IP of 192.168.1.100. I used the command 'sudo ip route add 192.168.1.100 dev wlan0'. The 'route -n' command shows me that there is a new entry. The 'route -n' command shows the current wlan0 IP as 192.168.1.0. I tried this IP too but I still am unable to connect.
