Network device startup order

I have a HP nc6230 laptop that I use at both work and home. When I am at work, I use a physical connection (eth1) and do not want to use the wireless network. When I boot up the laptop, I am forced to down the eth0 device and bring up the eth1 device and get a DHCP address. Is it possible to have my default eth1 (ethernet device) to startup prior to the wireless adapter?

Thanks for any help in advance!!!!

I had the exact same problem, until I got the following from this thread. I now use it all the time.

Any questions on it, just ask.

And remember to thank Eric Hameleers
