olpc-netstatus should work either way. I see that it detected properly that
eth1 is your ethernet.
It should also work if it was the other way around.
it scans all eth*, and checks which has an IP.(now if both have an IP it
willonly choose one)
oh btw *I think* eth1 shows as the wireless, when you upgrade the build
with the eth/usb adapter plugged in(not 100% sure)
about olpc-connections then this is a bug.
It is not smart enough to determine whether eth0/eth1 is active.
I will make sure this is fixed before i put on the build

perhaps there is nothing i can do. I will have to ask in 1cc

I was testing with a sample resolv.conf file and I forgot about it.
