    That's what I used to do for the last 10 years, except ifplugd
instead of netplug.

    It works perfectly with some hand tweaking of /etc/interfaces.

    Also you need to configure /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
by hand or install wpa_gui.

    Anyway, wpa_supplicant.conf needs the following instructions:

ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=dialout

    You can choose a different group, and you should make yourself a
member of this group.
