Re: cannot connect to the internet after resume

I use Debian Etch (stable).
And yes, the driver is called ath_pci.
Do I need to run wpa_supplicant again after restarting NetworkManager?
What causes this problem? Is is a bug of wpasupplicant?

Thank you very much for you reply.

I had a similar problem, and discovered that you also have to kill
So as a temporary workaround you could try something like the following:

rmmod ath_pci (or rmmod ath5k)
killall wpa_supplicant
modprobe ath_pci (or modprobe ath5k)
service NetworkManager restart
