I use wpa_supplicant for setting up all the wireless parameters, and
ifplugd for doing the rest of the ip configurations. Works like a charm.
My ifplugd on my laptop listens on eth0 (cable) and wireless (wlan)
interfaces and as soon as a cable is plugged (eth0) or we got associated
it ifups the respective interface. 

Best wishes

WIGAN (n.)
If, when talking to someone you know has only one leg, you're trying
to treat then perfectly casually and normally, but find to your horror
that your conversion is liberally studded with references to (a) Long
John Silver, (b) Hopalong Cassidy, (c) The Hockey Cokey, (d) 'putting
your foot in it', (e) 'the last leg of the UEFA competition', you are
said to have committed a wigan. The word is derived from the fact that
sub-editors at ITN used to manage to mention the name of either the
town Wigan, or Lord Wigg, in every fourth script that Reginald
Bosanquet was given to read.
