The idea is that the /etc/rc.local script will check the state of a switch at startup, and run the appropriate script to set that mode. At the moment, I'm forcing /usr/local/sbin/wifiModeAP to run in /etc/rc.local until the hardware is finished.

See BBB WiFi Monitor for a script that monitors for IP address changes on all interfaces, and outputs the new configuration to a printer.
