Add the following line to the above for each interface you want to start
on boot:

auto <interfacename>

for example, if you want to start wlan0 on boot, add

auto wlan0

just above the

allow-hotplug wlan0



Thanks Matthew.

I will try that.

I would like the option to switch between wireless and hardwired connections.
It sounds as though that method doesn't give me that option?

How can i get around that so i've got the flexibility to use either? When i had
my wireless connection using eth1 on another distro, it wasn't necessary to
configure anything.

Thanks for your advice.
