I'm no expert, but this seems to be distro dependant.
you could try `ifconfig eth0 up` and `ifconfig eth0 down`
this should be the equivalent of /release /renew
but then you would probably have to use pump (or whatever your distro
uses) to get things fully working. `pump -i eth0`
on gentoo i use: `/etc/init.d/net.eth0 restart`
i think some other distros use some form of `/etc/init.d/networking restart`
which distro are you using?
