Default auto switch to ethernet on openbsd

how would i have ethernet take priority in openbsd? i will explain my needs

at work, i am often moving my linux laptop around and then connecting to say a switch, firewall server via ethernet, where i access its console or management interface. i do this via ethernet and it gives me an ip with dhcp, it all happens automaticly in linux or windows

but openbsd does not do that, it ignores my ethernet if im already connected to wifi
,
even if i do a cold boot while plugged into ethernet that has working net, wifi takes priority, it starts first and gets a lease, becoming the active network interface and leaving ethernet in the dust

its annoying dual booting all the time, if i could correct htis behaviour i could use the lovely openbsd at work

so how? how can i make it auto switch to ethernet, even a script that makes it easier to switch between the two would be nice, i just dont see how

This scenario is covered in the FAQ

Read the sub-section "Trunking Your Wireless Adapter"

replace https with http in the link, it should work:
http://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq6.html#Wireless
or you can go to firefox options, Certificates and
uncheck query "OSCP responder servers ...",
then https will work
