Powering up Interface
My laptop has two interfaces, eth0, 1gbit LAN, and eth1 which is wireless. I usually use eth1 for day-to-day computing, but sometimes I need to transfer large files quickly, so I sometimes switch from eth1 to eth0. The problem I am experiencing is that as my laptop boots, it checks to see if there is a cable plugged into eth0, and if it doesn't find one, it powers the port off, meaning I cannot plug a cable in later without restarting.
Does anyone know how to power the interface up after my laptop has booted?
