I used to run this command for restarting network in Intel Galileo; but the networking program is not present in Intel Edison.

/etc/init.d/networking restart

How do I restart the network?

Thanks!

Hello crmakers,

Edison doesn't use init.d, so the command you used to run in Galileo will not work in Edison. Edison uses systemd. So to restart the network you should restart the corresponding service. You can manage the services using the command systemctl. The command you should run is the following:

  • systemctl restart wpa_supplicant.service

You can check the status of the service with the following command:

  • systemctl status wpa_supplicant.service

Regards,

Diego.
