Re: Switching between wired and wireless

I am looking to create a near-seamless experience with my laptop from switching from a physical network connection(wired) to a wireless connection. Right now my process to do this includes taking down the NIC with ifconfig when I want to switch to wireless, and then to get back to using the physical connection from wireless, I have to take down the wireless card. Is there any way to streamline this whole process? It would be great to be able to set precedence of connections(physical connection having a priority over wireless).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

So far, your requirements are somewhat vague.
Would shell scripts to do the switchover be acceptable?
Or do you want automatic detection of loss of carrier
and switchover?
IOW, what does "near-seamless" mean?

I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
