I use my Thinkpad laptop with a docking station. The docking station is connected to my router via LAN. When I walk around the house I use my laptop with WLAN.
Is it possible (and how) to manage these devices with a script or something to work like this:
If a LAN-Connection is up, the OS should turn off Wifi and if LAN-Connection gets lost (undocking) Wifi should turn on automatically.
I use Ubuntu 11.04 64bit with Gnome 2. The system works on an Lenovo ThinkPad R500 with.
WLAN-Device: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN [Shiloh] LAN-Device: Broadcom Corporation NetLink BCM5787M Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express (rev 02)
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
