I am using a laptop on both a wireless network and a wired network. It would be 
nice, I thought, to have two different names for it. So I changed the hostname 
just before bringing it up... BAD BAD! I have got the hostname back where it 
should be. However, I have no routes, at boot and can not get to my wired 
network. What should I do to get things back together??

I have tried adding the routes manually and route -n shows them correctly. But 
the network is still unreachable, even after stopping & starting networking. Of 
course, when I reboot after adding the routes they go away again. Are they not 
kept somewhere in a file that I can edit or configure??
