Yes, but this still switches the default route from the first ethernet card inserted to the second. Basically, whichever card is added last becomes default route.

My main trouble is that the second ethernet card is a wireless card, so that if I am not near an access point, dhcp fails and shouldn't change any route. This preserves my wired ethernet card as default. In general, though, I think I want to be able to select an interface to be preferred default route (because the default should be the wired card if that's active).

Is there a better solution to this (perhaps) more general problem of picking an interface to be default route?

Let me know if I've confused anyone terribly. (Besides myself.)

Message Administration

This form allows you to delete, move, or copy one or more messages. You can move messages by copying and deleting the original. The action will be applied to the messages you select above and all replies to those selected messages.

If you want to copy or move messages, specify the HyperNews path of a destination forum or message that all messages will be copied or moved to. The destination must already exist, so maybe create it first.

Path of Destination (a Forum or Message): (e.g. "test")

Notify Subscribers at destination

If you want to delete messages (the default), specify that here. If you want to move messages, you need to delete the original messages; placeholders will be left pointing to where they were moved.

Delete Messages

Caution: After deleteing messages (the default), if you have not copied them (i.e. no destination above), then the selected messages are not be recoverable.
