I have a question, I have a Dell Inspiron 8200 that has a 10/100 nic
and a wireless nic. I use this system both at work and home. When I
am at work, I am hard wired, but wireless at home. Is there anyway to
set the bootup so that it only activates the 10/100 nic when at work
and only the wireless when at home?
For the wired NIC, you might like ifplugd. It will bring the interface
up/down when the cable is inserted/removed.
If the wireless is a PCMCIA card and the cardmgr stuff is set up properly
it shoud be brought up/down whenever the card is inserted/removed. If the
wireless NIC is internal, I don't know. I'd just set up sudo and make
aliases like "alias wup='sudo ifup eth1'", but it sounds like you want
something more automated.
