I have Suse 10.1. It turns out that my wireless went down. I
tried to do a ifconfig ath0 down followed by an up. It did not
restart the network. If I do

/etc/init.d/network restart

, will this restart the network? Will this apply to 10.3?

yes, but... better and the openSUSE way: rcnetwork restart (as

akulkis@kulkis:~> file /sbin/rcnetwork /sbin/rcnetwork: symbolic link
to `/etc/init.d/network'

The difference (and suse gets points for this) is that "rcnetwork" is in
the path. So, I can type "rcne<tab> restart" instead of the clumsy "/etc/init.d/network restart"


/etc/init.d/network restart works on ANY *n*x platform except BSD
