anybody got a clever way to reset a connection?


My university's internet service is ridiculous. I guess it's fast enough, but it's still using SSL 2.0 and kicks me off randomly. One minute I'm surfing, the next minute nothing loads and AIM messages to myself don't go through.

The only solution I have for this thus far is to reboot my Xubuntu + Enlightenment laptop, which feels way too much like windows. Anybody know a better way to reset the ethernet or whatever restarting it is doing? I'm hoping there's some kind of command.

I tested that command while my internet was working, and it predictably cut off the internet. I guess I expected to see the university logon screen when I opened firefox, but I just get the ol' "server not found". How can I get logged back on after using this command?

logically if you bring down the interface you will need to bring it up again....

Code:
ifconfig eth0 up

Looks like you are using Ubuntu and since it is Debian based you should be able to re-establish network connections using the root consol command /etc/init.d/networking restart.
