wlan router disco wifi, when wired connects


Actualy i have two issues, but the titled one is way more annyoing.
But maybe they're kinda connected to the solution.

Situation 1:
While i have 2 wifi devices (see sig), well 3 if you count the HTC, in my room as i like to watch out of the 'real' window while sit at laptop and thinking.
However, now everytime i set up a new minimal install, i know i'll be sitting at my router using a wire to do the first few installs to enable wifi for the device.

Approach / Issue 1:
New System @ wifi router
1) Device is booted
2) plug in wire
3) ifconfig p3p1 up
4) dhclient -B -4 p3p1
5) doesnt work unless i restart device
1) login as root
2) above steps 3,4
3) do the installs, while the other deviceS just lost their WIFI.

That is pretty annoying, since the others living in this house (patchwork living group) become a mob and hunt me down


Situation 2:
While NetworkManger's cli is far off my understanding, i used to be able to easy connect to either wifi or wire by ifconfig DEV up|down, wpa_supplicant -iwlan0 -c/path/configfile, dhclient -B wlan0...

Issue 2:
Once the connection is established, either wifi or wired, and looses that connection, i cannot use those commands to connect to any other spot/device. As dhclient is already running.

Questions below...

Thank you very much in advance.

Forgot to mention... i have 2 left hands in networking cases

Most usefull found so far:
But dont know how to apply to linux

Solved: 0/3

Info on Q3: According to BSD Docs ifconfig $DEV up scan should do the trick, but that doesnt work on Fedora.
