Now netcfg doesn't support a feature to activate last used profile.
It will be great if it can be used as an option to NET_PROFILES variable in rc.conf like 'menu' option.

I can write a patch and provide it to archlinux team.
This task depends upon

This set of patches to network init script and netcfg utility implements all needed functionality.
just needs to add NET_PROFILES=(last) into rc.conf.

James, what's the status of this report now that new netcfg is out?

Is this fixed in netcfg 2.0.6-1?
