Use an enhanced location changer script
Authored by: olivesoft on Aug 07, '06 07:05:45PM
I used SleepWatcher to trigger when the previously mentioned script is run. It doesn't run continuously, just whenever my PowerBook wakes from sleep.

I tend to think of [Mac] OS X as Linux with QA and Taste.

Use an enhanced location changer script
Authored by: gghose on Aug 13, '06 07:29:53PM

The package here makes use of the OS X's built-in facility to call programs when networking changes. The script only runs when the network changes, not continuously. This is significantly more flexible than just depending on sleep wake up, since network changes can happen when interfaces are disconnected or due to manual intervention (like connecting with a modem).
