It's important to me that wlan is completely disabled when ethernet is available.
Ethernet routes should be mounted with a lower Metric than wireless one. Thus, even if you have both connections active the ethernet path should be used (except if you have specific routes).
Thanks for this information, but using ethernet over wireless is not enough. Wireless stuff tends to stall the whole system for a fraction of a second at least, which is often too much already. A decision at boot-time would be enough for me. At home, where I do audio stuff, I need only ethernet. If the cable is plugged in at boot time -> ethernet, no wireless. At university I don't need audio and don't have ethernet access, no cable plugged in -> wireless. Of course I can start or stop one or the other if need be but I'm looking for the most care-free solution possible. Guess I'll need to script this somehow...
