ifplugd is a daemon which will automatically configure your ethernet device
when a cable is plugged in and automatically de-configure it if the cable is
pulled out. This is useful on laptops with onboard network adapters, since it
will only configure the interface when a cable is really connected.  Features
* syslog support
* Multiple ethernet interface support
* Uses Debian's native ifup/ifdown programs
* Small executable size and memory footprint
* Option to beep when the cable is unplugged or plugged
* Option to beep when the interface configuration succeeds or fails
* Can be configured to ignore short unplugged or plugged periods
* Configure WLAN devices (on detecting a successful association to an AP)
* Supports SIOCETHTOOL, SIOCGMIIREG and SIOCDEVPRIVATE for getting link status
* Compatibility mode for network devices which do not support cable detection
