I have Gentoo running on an old Dell laptop. When I boot up both my wired and wireless networks (eth0 and wlan0) come up, but I can't access the internet. If I stop one of the two networks, then outbound connections work, but it also shuts down all of my services (i.e. sshd) and if I restart a service it restarts the network I shut down. I don't really want to use both simultaneously, but I do want to be able to choose which one I am using depending on where I am.

The wired network uses a static IP address and the wireless one is set up for DHCP.

Thanks, installing ifplugd makes things better, but services won't come up until both interfaces start, but at least I can access the net with both interfaces running unlike before.

if /etc/rc.conf enables 'rc_depend_strict="YES" ' you would see the behavior you describe. while looking at that you might enable 'rc_logger="YES" ' which provides /var/log/rc.log

That works as a satisfactory solution, thanks.
