How this happens: I am on Internet on elementary OS and all of a sudden Internet no longer works, I realize this for instance because I can't load any website anymore.

Then the network icon on the top right changes to indicate there is no longer network working.

When I go to "Network settings" it is showing Wireless is disabled - as shown on this screenshot.


When wifi no longer works under elementary OS, that is annoying because there is no way to relaunch it unless I restart Elementary which always takes a few minutes - just logging out is not enough.

I have two questions:

  1. How to prevent this from happening,
  2. When this happens, how to have wifi network again without rebooting my computer?

Thanks to all trying to help me.
