ifplugd is a service which will automatically configure your ethernet device
when a cable is plugged in and automatically unconfigure it if the cable is
This is useful on laptops with onboard network adapters, since it will only
configure the interface when a cable is really connected.
NB: not every Linux ethernet driver is capable of reporting link status.
Use ifplugstatus to find out.
