If anyone is feeling a little bit adventurous, I have been piddling with writing my own network daemon.
The biggest thing it offers over other network daemons is that it actively monitors the connection, by pinging the local gateway.
It is still very very rough around the edges, but quite functional (I have uninstalled NM and WICD).
If you are interested you can read more or even try it out here:

If you do please send feedback.
Interesting project. I'll have a look and send some feedback
I have been wanting to try your network daemon, but so far I have not managed to connect to the site you provided. I keep getting the following error:
Network Error (tcp_error)
A communication error occurred: "Operation timed out"
The Web Server may be down, too busy, or experiencing other problems preventing it from responding to requests. You may wish to try again at a later time.
For assistance, contact your network support team.
This is unfortunate. I just went through and everything worked fine for me. *scratches head and curses computers*
For now I'll email it to you (it's only 14k).
If anyone else is interested but having this problem you can email me, wmdiem at gmail dot com, subject WAND.
Meanwhile I'll see whether I can figure out what the problem is.
I hate bumping, but I'm just wondering whether anyone had any experiences with this. I'm hopefully going to have some time to get back into it in a few days and if there are any particularly large bugs it would be good to resolve them before I keep moving on.
EDIT: btw, if you want to try it but haven't it may be best to just hold off a week or two, I'm planning to put up a much improved version before long.
