Wireless not turning back on (newbie question)

Hi everyone. I'm new to this Linux thing so just bear with me. I'm using Suse 9.1 on my thinkpad T40. I have everything running fine, but there is one small problem. When i come out of suspend (apm mode) the wireless card won't be on anymore. Is there any command that i can type to boot the card (and by card i mean Intel pro wireless 2100) manually without having to restart. Any help would be great. Thanks

Hi Daniel,

ifup eth0
where eth0 is the wireless card, might help. If not, try
ifdown eth0
before this. There is a possibility that the driver you are using 'hangs' during suspension, in which case it should be unloaded before suspending and loaded back again. This is somewhat 'advanced', but diligence and Google should help.

Thanks Dialor, I tested the commands and they didn't bring it back. Is there anyone that could get me on the right track to unloading the drivers running the card before suspend in suse 9.1
