Thanks for your response. NM is disabled as it caused problems with a Vz cell modem. Wanted this netbook to be able to connect by 3 methods - wifi, cell, and wired and the cell part was a show-stopper. Also, hoping to move ultimately to a completely embedded, non-gnome NM dependency.
Got everything working except the wired link status change doesn't seem to tickle a DHCP release/request cycle like you would expect w/NM in the picture.
Are you aware of anything similar to interfaces pre-up/down, post-up/down directives but which are alert to link status changes instead of interface up/down changes? I may just have to frequently monitor status output from mii-tools as a workaround.
Thanks for your response and anyone's ideas.
