Using scripts to enable/disable network adapters

I'm looking for information regarding scripting in Mac OS X.  What I want to do, is have 2 scripts, one that will disable a Wi-Fi adapter and another to enable the adapter.  We'd like to do this so a user can switch on the fly between their wi-fi and a broadband air card.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Instead of making a script, can't you just make sure the Airport logo is on the top right of the menu bar? It's as simple as click, disable. When you want to re-enable it, then click, enable.

Much simpler and quite painless, rather than writing a script.
