    [SOLVED] no internet connection when not connected at startup

    Hi everyone!

    When I start up my computer without having the modem connected, I won't have any internet connection.

    However, when there is a connection while I start up the machine I will have internet.

    So each time I forget about connecting the computer to the modem before I startup my computer, I have to connect the computer to the modem and restart again.

    It does not help to try dhclient when my computer has no internet connection.

    I use kubuntu 8.04.

    Try the terminal command
    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
    after plugging the modem in.

    Thanks! That solved the problem. I tried it out right away and

    sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
    does the trick.
