    Fix Internet Connection Problems w/ Linux


    My internet connection is acting weird lately.

    I called my ISP and I was told to connect my PC cable directly to the modem,

    >Boot XP
    >start
    >run
    >cmd
    >ifconfig/release
    >ifconfig/renew

    Then I get it to work.

    May I kindly know how to fix this problem even using my linux (ubuntu)?

    Thank you for your time and attention!

    Code:
    sudo dhclient -r
    The -r flag explicitly releases the current lease, and once the lease has been released, the client exits.
    Code:
    sudo dhclient
    Obtain new IP
