Xubuntu 9.10 on a DELL Inspiron 1150.
I have a problem with intermittent dropping of my wireless connection ( see Belkin 7010 thread).Once dropped, the wireless will NOT reconnect (It just sits there saying "connecting" but never does) Same happens if I manually disconnect - I can never re-connect. On rebooting it will reconnect fine & all is well for sometimes 4 hrs...
How can I kill all wireless services & restart them without having to reboot the laptop?

Have you tried


sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

?
