I'm not sure I understand completely, but see "Backing up over a network" in the User's Guide.

I have my superduper backup on a networkdrive and that works great. But I don't want that SuperDuper do schedule backup over wireless lan!

When I'm on my desk I plug in the LAN cable. Then it's ok when superduper do backup (because it's much faster).

So my idea was, to write a script, that detect the kind of network connection.

If wireless lan -> cancle backup

Ah. Well... you could write a shell script that would return errors on Wireless LAN, but it'll generate an error. Why not just cancel it when it tells you it's going to run?

Because I'm lazy ;)

No, not realy! In the moment i do it that way, but it's a bit annoying...
