Disable AirPort when Ethernet cable is connected
Authored by: tom larkin on Mar 15, '10 09:25:37AM

What exactly is stopping the user from turning the Airport back on though? If your list of order for network services lists Ethernet a higher priority it will use it over anything else. The only time I see this eventful is if you want to save battery power on a mobile device, but then you have the overhead of launchd running and checking every so often, or if you want to save unneeded IP addresses on your wireless VLANs.

If you enable admin rights to modify the airport card, then you have users that will need admin passwords every time they want to join a network, which would defeat the purpose.
