Reconnecting wireless network in Ubuntu
On occasion (cause not yet found) my wireless connection breaks. When I go into Network Manager, I have found, by experimenting, that I can reconnect by a) unlocking by giving password, b) clicking on the ticked box against "Wireless connection" and waiting as it re-ticks the box, c) highlighting "Wireless connection" and clicking on "Properties" d) changing DHCP to IPv4 LL, changing back to DHCP and then waiting for the network interface change to take effect. Usually this reconnects.
If I go into "Connection Properties" and try to "Configure", I am told that "The interface does not exist" yet a connection is there. Entering "sudo iwconfig" I can see that wlan0 has Tx-Power=27 dBm, Link Quality 69/100 and Signal level=-62 dBm. I am using a Cable & Wireless rt2500 PCMCIA card on a Compaq Evo N800C laptop.
Is there a better way to get back on? Should the interface "exist"? Does this indicate a fault that I can correct?
Thanks in advance
