I have a Linksys WRT54Gv5 which I have setup in client bridge mode and connected to my remote PC (it runs FC7). Essentially the Linksys acts like a big wireless card which connects via ethernet (eth0 on that PC). When I run ifconfig, the Linksys and hence the remote PC is assigned an IP by the main router on the same subnet. I can access this PC via SSH and other means so the connection is fine.
However at times the connection between the two is lost (the remote PC is downstairs and on the opposite side of the house). Currently I need to go downstairs and run Network Configuration
on the remote Pc, then deactivate and activate eth0 to be able to see it on the network again.
Is there a way to get the remote PC to do the deactivating and activating itself? Would this be the same as running service networking restart
