That's what caused my problem.  I need a way to restore it when using the
other network with assigned IPs.


Your situation is identical to mine, I have a wireless card I use for my home network with DHCP, and an Ethernet card for school on a fixed-IP network. I've thought about using enter and exit hooks with the dhclient, but haven't gotten around to trying it out yet.

Maybe having an exit hook that sets resolv.conf up for the fixed-IP nameservers whenever the wireless link is taken down? Since it's automatically set up when dhclient first assigns an IP you don't really need an entry hook, but if you want to do some fancy checks (for a connection on the Ether card, for instance) I guess you could set one up. And let's not forget the routing tables. Rather than having it in rc.conf, maybe throwing that into entry and exit hooks to set up the default gateway for the wireless is a good idea as well?

But like I said, I haven't gotten around to trying it out yet. If you beat me to it, do tell how it worked out, ok? ;-)
