I have 2 network interfaces:
- eth0 for LAN connection
- wlan2 for wireless connection
I have set them static in the
/etc/network/interfaces file. The problem is that I rarely have both connected at the same time and if the LAN is not connected, wlan2 doesn't work until I take down the eth0 manually with
Why does this happen?
I would like that when one interface is not connected it will be turned off automatically. How can I do that?
Here's the interfaces file:
auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.130 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 192.168.1.0 dns-nameservers 22.214.171.124 126.96.36.199 up route add default gw 192.168.1.10 eth0 down route del default gw 192.168.1.10 eth0 auto wlan2 iface wlan2 inet static wpa-ssid "dlink" wpa-key-mgmt WPA-PSK wpa-psk wpapass address 192.168.1.150 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 192.168.1.0 dns-nameservers 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206 up route add default gw 192.168.1.20 wlan2 down route del default gw 192.168.1.20 wlan2
