power lost from cable modem, interface lost
I have a cable modem connected to my usb port and using it as eth1, this works good.
The problem is when there is a power failure, the modem shutsdown because it s not connected to ups and when it is turned on i cant connect to the interface, if i do ifconfig i get only my ethernet eth0 interface. to gain access to eth1 i must do ifdown eth1, ifup eth1. This is a big problem because i want to have remote access to this computer using ssh, but if there is a power failure i cant connect to the computer.
There is a way to automatically recover eth1 from a power failure, automatically doing ifdown eth1, ifup eth1.
Thanks in advance.
