Review by OneBadFrog

What I've been looking for - I have a mostly wired network in my house, but when I take my laptop off my desk I like the fact that don't have to worry about turning on my airport card and then off again when I reconnect it later. The only CON that I have for it, is the speed at which it changes over between networks interfaces. It takes about 5 to 10 seconds for the switch. Not bad. It also took me a little bit to figure out the settings to use for me because the only tech manual on the developers web site was for the windows version only (This probably will change in the future) and didn't say anything about what the setting do. I use the "Disable Wireless if wired is connected" as it turns off my airport card when I'm connected to my wired network and then on when I disconnect from it.
