Nerd Food: Suspend and Resume on Karmic

For some reason, the suspend and resume in Karmic (Ubuntu 9.10) fails to restart wireless properly on one of my laptops. According to lspci the card is a RealTek RTL8101E/RTL8102E . Everything else works ok, and the failure is intermittent - maybe one resume fails out of three or so. If you have the same problem, you can try the following before restarting your machine:

$ su
# cd /etc/init.d
# ./networking restart
# ./network-manager restart

This seems to sort the problem out, most of the time. Hopefully the Lynx is going to fix this.
