I have Rogers @ Home cable internet, and due to that fact that they have set up a system only allowing one NIC card to use an ip at a time with out releasing it, to use the internet on my linux system, i need to learn how to release the ip, how would i go about doing that? anyone?

You should be able to do it by just bringing the interface down and back up again by using "ifdown ethx" and then "ifup ethx", where x is the device number of your NIC.

Also, both DHCP clients (dhcpcd and pump) can be passed an option to release/renew a lease, but I can't remember the exact syntax at the moment.
