I'd look at doing something with udev, hotplug2 or whatever covers that functionality on the version of OpenWRT that you're using
Thanks Keith, I'll play with that and see what solution I cone up with.
It occurred to me that a nice feature for kplex would be an option to start up even if certain interfaces did not exist, and then to keep polling for them until they did exist. Likewise, if an interface was disconnected it could begin polling for it until it was reconnected.
I think this option would be useful on the desktop
, too, not just on routers.
