When I am at home I use wired connection on my laptop and it works fine. Then I put it to hibernate with sudo pm-hibernate and start it up again when I am work. I am not able to connect to internet without a reboot of the machine.

I have tried:

 ifconfig eth0 down
 ifconfig eth0 up

But it does not help. Also:

 dhclient eth0

This took a long time to run and when finished still no success. Found this in /var/log/syslog:

Exact same thing happens when I put the laptop to hibernate at work and start it up again at home. Anyone got a clue to why I have to reboot to make wired connection work after hibernate?

I am using Mint 17 with the latest updates.

  • What happens if you ifconfig eth0 down before you hibernate, then hibernate, then ifconfig eth0 up after you start it up ?

As answered here one of the root cause would be the misconfiguration of NetworkManager. Re-installation of NetworkManager might help.

Also please watch out that you may be out of connection during re-installation.

Another option would be to replace NetworkManager with wicd.

  • It sounds strange to have to do it every twice a day.
