Solution to vmnet1 down after suspend

I have all the machines on a host only network which works just great. But every time I suspend my laptop the virtually device vmnet1 seems to “go down” and I have to make a:

With the following content:


ip link set vmnet1 up

Now I don’t have do it manually any more, horay :-D
