    more ipconfig to ifconfig

    What is the linux (ubuntu) equivalent of "ipconfig /release" and then "ipconfig /renew" I would like to create a quick script to release and renew the IP.

    See the documentation of iwconfig and ifconfig with
    Code:
    iwconfig --help
    and
    Code:
    ifconfig --help
    in terminal.

    Release IP address
    sudo dhclient -r <interface such as eth0, wlan0, etc>

    Renew DNS lease
    sudo dhclient <interface>
