... that is automatically setting the network interfaces, depending on the devices connected to. E.g. I'd like to configure my eth0 connection to either DHCP if it find's a certain host via MAC or to a static IP if it detects another host. Also I need something similair for WLAN, depending on the found ESSID and/or the strongest signal.

Also it should work as a daemon, so that it a physical connection gets lost automatically the route tables and resolv.conf are adjusted, and vice versa.

Is there some program which can do so?

Man, this would be the holy grail of network configuration.

Have you found something that can do this?
