http://ubuntuforums.org – Dear all: I seem to be having "disconnects" from my wireless network where I stay connected but am unable to ping any hosts, including my router. I would like to make a simple cron script that checks for this and reconnects. Is there a clean way to tell wicd to reconnect? How about sudo /etc/init.d/wicd restart? I am on Ubuntu 8.04 amd64 misha@misha-d630:~$ dpkg -l | grep wicd ii wicd 1.6.2.2-1 wired and wireless network manager misha@misha-d630:~$ Any help appreciated Thank you! Misha (HowTos)
