Yesterday there were a couple of hours long xfinity cable outages and

It could connect, but I couldn't see anything on the internet, I suspect
because I beat NetworkManager into submission with too big a hammer
on my normal network setup where it kept not using my internal LAN
DNS, so my big hammer was to edit

Then remove the /etc/resolv.conf symlink and replace it with a fixed
content file with my local search and dns server so I can lookup
names for all my local stuff.

There shouldn't be any reason to break things like that. You can set the DNS server in the interface settings with network manager.

So, my question is: How to override DNS the same way, but only for
my hardwired ethernet connection, while allowing me to disable that
connection and use my hotspot in time of comcast outage?

Heck, it would be even better if I could use both at the same time,
the local ethernet to get to other computers in the house and the hotspot
to access the internet (but I have a feeling my brain might never
be able to wrap around that).

This is possible with split DNS, but I don't know how to do that automatically. I do this with a VPN at work where a certain domain needs to be resolved over the VPN, but I run a script with the DNS commands after connecting.
