Turn AirPort on or off with AppleScript
Authored by: keyslapper on Jul 31, '07 08:25:06AM

Hmm ... No, it doesn't work like that for me:

$ scselect AirPort-Off
Set "AirPort-Off" not available.

Defined sets include: (* == current set)
0 (Automatic)
* AB4F8C43-A465-4DFA-80BC-BA93FDBD51FB (Work)
8FF3D441-21F0-432A-B216-3A7B2D3F3456 (Home)
(Hex strings and Location names modified to protect the guilty)

The manpage suggests that scselect only provides access to different location configurations. No mention of "AirPort-Off" or "AirPort-On".

The scselect command is for switching between locations you've defined in System Preferences > Network. The command I listed wouldn't work for you because you don't have a Location named "AirPort-Off". You can create a new location with the "New Location..." command in the Location: popup menu; in my case I created one named "AirPort-Off" and disabled AirPort for it.

Now in your case, you have three locations defined: Automatic, Home, and Work. To switch between them, you would run one of "scselect Automatic", "scselect Work", or "scselect Home".
