10.3.4 didn't fix disconnecting after sleep <sigh>

Message #1 - Posted 2004/05/27 - David Coleman

My iBook still wakes from sleep disconnected from cable internet. Earlier versions of Panther didn't do this.

Tired of having to use Terminal to reconnect after sleep....

I've never had to do this. Is your cable system using PPPoE or straight Ethernet?

And do you let it 'fall' asleep or actively put it to sleep? There can be differences exhibited in wake up behaviors.

Do you have any details on this, or is it all too unclear to be specific?

Ethernet. Known problem since 10.3.3.

Prior to 10.3.3 there was no problem.

Yes, I get the same here too. G5 1.8 dual with 10.3.4. I use ADSL with an ADDON router, and in the UK we use PPPoA. It's connected via Ethernet to the Mac.

If I let the G5 sleep overnnight, I am almost always guaranteed to lose the network connection when I get in from work the next day (I leave mone running 24/7) and try to wake it up. It usually needs a logout/in to reinstate it, sometimes a restart. I haven't found the terminal trick as yet.

As it is I have now turned off all sleep functions, and seem to have no adverse affects. Indeed, the newer Macs are supposed to benefit from running at a constant temperature, especially the hard drives used in the G5s.

Not sure I have exactly the same problem because logout/in doesn't reconnect for me. In Terminal you can type:

sudo ifconfig en0 down ; sudo ifconfig en0 up

I'm used to it.

The logout/in doesn't always work for me either, sometimes it's a restart.

sudo ifconfig en0 down ; sudo ifconfig en0 up

Cheers, I'll make a note of that.

Perhaps a small script?
