Well ,when I turn the Router off and then I turn it on again while running Ubuntu , it doesn't obtain an IP address automatically :

enter image description here

I click on disconnect , but it remains like above.

It works only if I log out and switch to another session and then back the default one.

So How do I reset the network adapter using a terminal command, or any another suggestions?

Edit: I've tried using sudo dhclient , but it didn't work.

If you really want to reset the network adapter you usually need to unload and reload the kernel module that it uses.

If you just want to reconfigure it you can usually do:

sudo /etc/init.d/network-manager restart

But if you just want a new dhcp lease (that's the technical name for obtain a new IP from the router), you just need to use:

sudo dhclient -v eth1
