Network Manager and static IP setup

http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi all, I'd like to have a set up where my Ethernet card has a static IP set up but my WiFi card doesn't. Currently I have a profile for this set up in Network Manager, however on boot up and every time I replug the cable Network Manager chooses the default "auto eth1" profile. I manually have to choose my own profile for the Ethernet card every time. How can I make it default?? I know the workaround would be to use ifup but then I lose the ability to quickly change access points for my WiFi card so that's not a solution for me. What do you guys recommend? thanks Hachre (Distributions)
