What he means is that the script which runs after the interface comes up
is waiting for a process to finish - which seems not to happen because
the process doesn't return - waiting for something? Listening mode?
So what you could do is using the & operator in that script after you
worked out which process is not returning. Then you can change that line
in the script and add an "&" after the execute command of that process.
# echo "a" &
Would "fork" the echo process for example and directly return to the
shell, without waiting for the echo process to finish.
