November 27th, 2008, 09:49 AM
Hi, my RTL8187 sucks. It goes down every other minut and I've to restart the whole system to bring it up... How can I restart the wifi connection or network without restarting ubuntu?

Don't tell me...

sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

...cos doesn't work

Thanks =)

You could just take down the adaptor and then bring it back up again

sudo ifconfig ath0 down
sudo ifconfig ath0 up

Can you post ifconfig

Most likely your interface is not going to be ath0
