Since a couple of updates my Sabayon machine had a broken
wlan0 interface after resuming from standby. The NetworkManager connected to the WIFI as expected and even received a correct IP from the DHCP server but something was broken with the routing as far as I know. The
route command didn’t return any route, pings failed.
I was able to fix the issue after every resume by running
sudo dhclient wlan0 manually. Needless to say, this was something that I did not want to do all the time. I found this helpful tip in the Ubuntu forums: Just create a bash script using root permissions in
20-dhclient, with this content:
#!/bin/bash # This script runs dhclient when using wireless if [ "$1" = "wlan0" ]; then if [ "$2" = "up" ]; then dhclient wlan0 fi fi
Save it, make it executable with
sudo chmod +x 20-dhclient and restart the network with either
sudo /etc/init.d/NetworkManager restart or
sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager.
If you know a better way to fix this issue, please let me know in the comments.
