Pretty sure what you are looking for is "apple rendezvous". Just
google those terms. Apple makes this technology available under a
liberal license.

From what I can tell from http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/rendezvous/
rendezvous seems more like UnPnp, and is not what I want. Currenty I have a
small shell-script which I run when I have logged in, the script takes two
parameters, the first is a name of the netwok and the second tells if it
should try to connect via cable or wireless. What I want is a program that
automatically detects which network I'm in and apply appropriate settings.

It would seem like an awfully hard thing to reliably detect what network your on for all but the very simplest networks, no? Partner MAC will rarely be the same all the time in complex networks (especially when they use multiple AP to cover wide ranges with WiFi), IP often are private ones, so not really useful either...
