Disable AirPort when Ethernet cable is connected
Authored by: jyu on Mar 10, '10 12:51:51AM
It's a nice idea. But depend on the sequence, it may not accomplish this: "This helps keep the user from grabbing two IPs."

Here is the logic:

- If you turn on or wait up the laptop after plug in Ethernet cable, then this script may work;
- But if you turn on or wait up the laptop first, Airport should've already grabbed an IP from your DHCP server. Even if you turn Airport off later, that IP won't be available to other devices until it's expired.
