    Here's the story:

    I want my users's Wireless cards to be disabled when the Network cable
    is plugged into the on board NIC on our LAN (for security purposes).

    They currently have Intel Pro/Wireless 2100 cards with the PROSet
    software. It doesn't support "adapter switching", I've checked up on
    this thoroughly.

    Is there some 3rd party stuff that I can use for this?

    The problem is that it does not automatically switching between
    wireless and wired when you insert or remove the ethernet jack+. It
    requires that the user manually select the proper "location".

    Thanks for the reply. We really need something that will sense the
    ethernet port and switch the Network interfaces automatically.

    Sounds reasonable to me.
    The WiFi NIC is not able to connect to that range, so if you can ping the
    wired gateway at its known address, you want to disable the WiFi, knowing
    that you are plugged in.

    If manually isn't good enough, what about a domain login script, or a
    background scheduled process that checked every five minutes? Is five
    minutes too long?

    I disable and enable my WiFi manually, by clicking on desktop icons that
    call a microsoft device control routine.

    Assuming Windows, I doubt such exists. If you find something like this
    though, please post back here. I am certain you aren't the only one who
    would find a program like that handy in the extreme.

    fundamentalism, fundamentally wrong.
