Does anyone seem to have this problem?
I updated from Gutsy to Hardy this weekend on my Acer Aspire 3680-2633 laptop. The actual installation went like clockwork and everything seemed to work after Hardy rebooted. Just a few days ago I started seeing a strange behavior by the machine. It would lose its network connection. Apps like Firefox could not make a connection and would time out. Evolution would do the same. In looking at my network settings via Gnome, everything looked normal. Only a reboot seemed to restore the network connection. After some digging around using the terminal, I finally got the network back up again using this command:
sudo /sbin/ifup eth0
The most peculiar thing about this is this only happens on my wired ethernet connection. The wireless connection works fine.
I'm not sure if this is just a Hardy bug or if this is a result of doing an update as opposed to doing a clean install of Hardy.
Anyone experience this?
