Re: Restart Wireless Without Rebooting

I am a network guy and I am always having to restart dbus. I am always
setting ip addrs on wired and wireless then to dhcp and back again -
ubuntu never picks up the changes. And sometimes not even after
restarting dbus.

I hope this gets smoothed out in the future or they give us an easier
way to restart network than the command line.

"/etc/init.d/dbus restart" should do the job - but it's only slightly

has a battery).

Does your system hibernate? I find that hibernate/resume often
my wlan (same hardware as yours). One of these days I'll check out
exactly what it's doing and see if I can write a script...or maybe you
will and send it to me :-)

Hmmm, that's more of a sledgehammer than my previous post
sudo /etc/dbus-1/event.d/25NetworkManager restart

Absolutely - but I know that, unless it's an odd side-effect of the
hibernation process itself, there really isn't much that happens in the
network unload/reload scripts, so it should be possible to script the part
that actually resets my network. otoh, if your dbus method does the same
thing, I don't need to script anything :-)

I wonder what it will do to Gnome stuff.

It really shouldn't matter whether it's Gnome or KDE.
