I've been working on a little script framework to handle conn-
ections for me [0]. My laptop has wwan, which makes the handl-
ing of the initialisation a bit more complex.

I'd be happy to see your scripts for comparison and extending
the handling.

For Wifi it is using wpa_supplicant, wpa_cli and some action
script, which does a grep on the ssid and then runs a script, if
WWAN is specific to the card in my X200, but should be adaptable
to the other hardware out there.
Ethernet is simply running dhcp on it. I haven't yet found some
way for determining which network I am in.
