I use ifplugd (from unstable) on my laptop (although only with built in
ethernet and not PCMCIA/wireless). It works well at configuring/deconfiguring
the interface when the cable is plugged or unplugged.
Here is the description from the man page:
ifplugd is a daemon which will automatically configure your ethernet
device when a cable is plugged in and automatically unconfigure it if
the cable is pulled. This is useful on laptops with on-board network
adapters, since it will only configure the interface when a cable is
It uses your distribution's native ifup/ifdown programs, but can be
configured to do anything you wish when the state of the interface
changes. It also works with PCMCIA devices, where the interface is not
available when no card is inserted (-f option). It may ignore short
unplugged whiles (-d option) or plugged whiles (-u option).
So, it looks like you could configure it to update the routing table as the
states of the various devices change. I'm not sure exactly how this would
be accomplished, but I can't image that it would be overly difficult.
