I'm looking for a way to run an AppleScript after my 3G modem is successfully connected to the carrier.

The modem is using the standard OSX network panel to connect, so it's not using any crappy carrier software.

Around the web I've found a lot of people running stuff after the modem is connected but it seems to be sending AT command to the modem, and I don't want that. I want to launch an AppleScript on my computer.

  • What is the modem type? – Ruskes Apr 22 '13 at 6:34
  • @Buscar웃 It's a USB 3G dongle modem from ZTE. – TCB13 Apr 22 '13 at 10:54

Try ControlPlane. It lets you trigger various events, including launching scripts, based on various system events, including what networks you're connected to. I'm not 100% sure if it will read any network interfaces, or just the default ones, but it's free and probably worth a look.

  • It can detect the 3G modem, but no luck trying to detect when it's successfully connected to the network. – TCB13 Dec 10 '12 at 17:48
