Connect to other networks while using a 3G modem
Authored by: siena on Sep 17, '08 10:40:24PM

and just for information the same does not occur with Windows, even with Vista there is no issue to have 3G and other networks active at the same time. Unfortunately the possibiity to use 'networksetup' to automatically activate the networks is not effective because this command seems to work randomically (at least in my case, different experiences are welcome).

"with Windows, there is no issue to have 3G and other networks active at the same time"
There is no issue with OS X either, it is just that those who wrote the connection software chose to disable the other interfaces, probably just to keep things simple. As this hint says, you can re-enable them and you have to do this only once. As a side-effect, the automatic location now also contains all those special interfaces created by the modem interface.
