I don't see how the NM script can recognize which one is connected.
If this is by comparing the MAC address, then this won't work with
the N900: as I've said, the MAC address of the N900 changes too

There's a limitation with ifupdown + guessnet: it is not possible
to AND two tests (e.g. one test on the peer IPv4 address, then
another test to check the device if the first test succeeds).
