Reset network to renew DHCP when changing locations
Authored by: kon21 on Sep 13, '06 12:32:17PM

peterjhill suggestion is still valid and works on 10.4.7

Every now and then, after changing networks multiple times, DHCP refuses to work. This trick saves me from rebooting.

GL.. and TY.

Peterjhills quote:
How about the "real" way to do this.

sudo ifconfig en1 down
sudo ifconfig en1 up

en1 is typically the airport interface
en0 is usually the wired interface
