If I reboot the router (Netgear DGN2200) my Ubuntu 11.10 Server box does not reconnect to the network. This is over a wired link either with a reserved IP Address over DHCP or a static IP Address configuration in /etc/network/interfaces as:
# The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The primary network interface auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.100 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255 network 192.168.1.0 gateway 192.168.1.1
Both connection methods fail after a router reboot i.e. no ping, no ssh, no http. I have never had to do anything special to ensure reconnection before - but am I missing something?
