Auto-disable AirPort when ethernet is active
Authored by: tinkster on Oct 10, '12 08:03:41PM

Great script & method, works a treat; that is: works a treat if the machine has a built-in ethernet port. If it's a machine that uses a USB-Ethernet adapter the names of airport & wired are reversed. I don't know enough about Apple machines to find out whether there's a better method than the interface name (hard-coded in the script) to determine whether an interface is wired or not.

And I prefer this method over the "precedence" - far superior. No wasted power, no possibility of routing loops.
