After waking the system from suspend my networking is disabled and will not start again, this started happening after upgrading from 13.04 to 13.10

sudo lshw -C network

What is your wireless driver from the terminal: sudo lshw -C network – chili555 Nov 18 '13 at 16:44

This technique sometimes, but not always works. Please open a terminal and do:

gksudo gedit /etc/pm/config.d/config

A new, empty file will open. Add a single line:


Proofread carefully, save and close gedit. It may take a reboot to test it.

Well, I had installed ubuntu 13.10 on a new machine but messed my network setting up.

  1. I installed gksu
  2. Runned: sudo gksu gedit in gedit open your network interfaces file found in etc-network-interfaces
  3. Edit the file with:

    -# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system

    -# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

    -# The loopback network interface

    -auto lo

    -iface lo inet loopback

    -# This is a list of hotpluggable network interfaces.

    -# They will be activated automatically by the hotplug subsystem.

    -# auto eth1

    -# iface eth1 inet dhcp

    then just save it.

  4. Just to make sure everything is ok a. please check your dhcpd.conf file found in etc-dhcp-dhcpd.conf to make sure

    option domain-name "";

    option domain-name-server,;

    default-lease-time 600; max-lease-time 7200;

    do not have # before them.

  5. now retart your system and I hope it works just like mine did
