The computer beeps whenever the net-auto-wired service is getting started or stopped, e.g. on every boot or shutdown. Note that this is not related to the pc speaker; muting the pc speaker does not resolve this issue.

The beeping is caused by omitting the "-b" flag in the ifplugd call in /usr/lib/systemd/system/net-auto-wired.service (see man ifplugd).

Please add the "-b" flag to the ifplugd call in the net-auto-wired.service file as the beeps are very annoying -- I don't think that the current behaviour is intended.

Additional info:
* netcfg 3.0-1
* Hardware: Lenovo Thinkpad T400
* Forum Topic:

Steps to reproduce:
Boot, shutdown, reboot or
# systemctl restart net-auto-wired.service
