    Restart the wifi connection

    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...

    Code:
    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
