I've got some understanding of iwconfig, ifconfig, route, traceroute... but that's about as far as my network information utilities goes. I could use a couple of quick pointers to other tools or concepts to research because I need to fix a small problem we're seeing with both our laptops.
Using wifi WPA and connecting to our AP fine. Every once in a while, we lose connection with the network and I don't know how to get it back. When this happens, the other laptop is working fine, so I know that our AP, router, modem are all okay. When I reboot the disconnected machine, it gets back on the network without any trouble.
What information can I get from dmesg, route, iwconfig, ifconfig etc after the machine has disconnected so that I can figure out what has gone wrong on the machine?
