[ubuntu] auto connect ethernet

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – My issue here is unique. There are times when I need to turn the router off while the computer is on. When I turn the router back on, with the computer still on, I want the machine to sense a connection and connect. This does not happen. I'd have to go to the computer, click about and get it connected. What I want is while the computer is on, turn off the router, turn the router back on and have internet connection on the computer without having to touch the machine. It's 9.10 on a laptop. Thanks a lot. (HowTos)
