A workaround for SMB share disconnects
Authored by: acdha on Apr 04, '08 09:37:12AM

Does "I use a laptop which normally uses a wired connection with fixed IP as a first choice" mean that you've arranged the ethernet connection to be before the Airport connection in the Network preferences? If not, I'd recommend that as it has in the past solved this class of problems.

Otherwise I wrote a hint awhile back about listening for SystemConfiguration changes using Python - it should be straightforward to build a script which would look for status changes on the ethernet interface and adjust the airport interface appropriately.
