Ubuntu – Wifi problem after suspend resume – solution

In 14.04 and 14.10 versions there is such problem in some devices. The solution can be different. But in 99% cases
the problem appears due to one of these two reasons: wpa_suplicant bug, wifi sleep bug.
Let’s go:
1. Try to restart network manager via terminal:

sudo restart network-manager

If it helps and after this command wifi started working, then add this command to autorun file. Run this command:

sudo gedit /etc/pm/sleep.d

In editor window paste this:

case "${1}" in
    resume|thaw)
        service network-manager restart;;
esac

2. May be it is wpa_suplicant problem. Run this command

sudo pkill -f wpa_supplicant

If it helps, then add this to autorun file:

sudo gedit /etc/pm/wpa_supplicant

In editor window paste this:

#!/bin/sh
case "$1" in
 resume)
   killall wpa_supplicant       
 ;;
esac

3. May be it is nmcli nm sleep problem. Then try this solution.

4. If none of above helped, try this solution from Ubuntu Forums

  1. ofer desade

    after trying oh-so-many workarounds i came accross 1 solution that didnt work but which had the words: if it’s a wifi, first unplug and replug. then do the workaround. unplugging and replugging was enuf!! (kinda like the IT crowd, no?)
