General network commands?


Hi, I have a situation wherein the WAP i'm connecting to is pretty far away and as a result I'm subject to intermittent disconnects... Sometimes, as a result, I'm left with a "connected" status yet I am unable to receive any packets... The only fix for me has been restarting the computer and I was wondering what some standard commands are to completely disable the network interfaces and then restart them (as if I had did a complete restart of the computer)

As well, I'm thinking my problem has to do with my having Local access but not internet access rights... I don't really understand how that works any articles on that?

I'm using Ubuntu Fiesty 7.04 and NetworkManager Applet 0.6.4.

Thanks for any help!

GUI: system > admin > network ... you can disable then enable the interface from there.

CLI:
ifdown wlan0
ifup wlan0

check your device with

iwconfig

wired nics use

ifconfig

the man pages for those commands will give you lots of ideas.
