Disable AirPort when Ethernet cable is connected
Authored by: Crazor on Mar 09, '10 12:47:42PM

I'd suggest grepping for 155.144. or even better for " 155.144." or even "inet 155.144." to avoid activation of the script when assigned an IP like "169.254.155.144" or similar. This would lead to unexpected behaviour ;)

Other than saving IPs, what other "odd issues" do you experience? I use airport and ethernet all the time at home or on campus. I prioritized the ethernet interface higher than airport in system configuration, and this works pretty seamless. For example, when I copy a big file from another machine via airport, I can plug in the ethernet cable and after a few seconds, the transfer speed increases from the slow wireless connection to super-fast gigabit ethernet ;)
