Re: How to REALLY restart networking?



A little update:
-- tried noapic but the problem persists
-- tried nolapic but then the kernel only recognized one of my two 
CPUs, so I reverted back
-- restarting /etc/init/dbus doesn't solve the issue
-- restarting /etc/init/dhcdbd doesn't solve the issue
-- restarting /etc/init/networking doesn't solve the issue
-- restarting /etc/init/network-manager doesn't solve the issue
-- restarting /etc/init/network-manager-dispatcher doesn't solve the 
issue
-- restarting /etc/init/wpa-ifupdown doesn't solve the issue
-- rmmoding ssb doesn't solve the issue
-- rmmoding wl doesn't solve the issue
-- rmmoding ieee80211_crypt doesn't solve the issue
-- modprobing the above modules doesn't help either
-- issuing depmod -a doesn't help either
-- killing the Gnome nm-applet and restarting it doesn't help either

-- ifconfig and iwconfig list my wireless interface as if everything 
was OK, with the exception of the ESSID being empty (and the wireless 
interface not being associated to the AP of course)

-- putting the laptop to sleep (suspending it to RAM) resolves the 
issue, upon resuming from sleep the nm-applet finds the AP and connects 
to it flawlessly.

All in all: there is some process/reset/service restart or whatever 
which gets triggered during a reboot and during a suspend which I can't 
seem to pinpoint. For now, a quick suspend-to-RAM followed by a quick 
wake-up enables me to avoid rebooting every day, but that's certainly 
not elegant and most certainly not a "solution"... :(
