I use ifplugd to bring my network devices up and down.
Wow. That did the trick.
All I had to do was add "eth1" (my laptop's wifi interface) to
/etc/default/ifplugd's list of managed interfaces.
Now, my only problem is that I get a long pause of about 30-40 seconds
when ifplugd starts up.
To diagnose the problem, I added a script to /etc/ifplugd/action.d which
notes the time and the interface and whether it's being brought up or
down. The result was:
16:05:24 - eth0 (wired) up
16:06:24 - eth1 (wireless) up
16:06:41 - eth0 (wired) down
This happens even when I put wpasupplicant before ifplugd in my rc2.d...
Does anyone else get this long pause when using ifplugd on their wireless?
Also, is there a way to keep ifplugd from initially bringing up the
interfaces? I thought the whole point was for it to only bring them up
when it saw a link. What's this "bring it up and then bring it back
