Acer Aspire One: Troubleshooting Wireless Network Problems

My Acer Aspire One – powered by a commercial Linux distro called Linpus – after entering sleep mode couldn’t connect to the wireless network anymore. The wireless connection logo vanished, turning the wifi switch on/off didn’t work either, as was useless try to launch the Network Center. If you got a similar problem, read below. came in my help, suggesting simply to delete some network files because apparently those files get corrupted when the battery runs out.

To fix it type the following comand on the command line sudo rm -rf ~/.gconf/system/networking or follow this step by step guide.
