In Tinker Board's default OS, Linaro ( Debian based ):
Launch Synaptic Package Manager

|Restarting networking on a Raspberry Pi ( debian, raspbian OS )

|I had trouble restarting networking on a debian/raspbian system when the wifi disconnected.
This didn't work:

This didn't work either:

ip link set dev eth0 down
ip link set dev eth0 up

sudo systemctl restart dhcpcd
A notable tool to use for the pi: wpa_cli: LINK

|The RPI 0 now includes wireless 802.11n and bluetooth 4. Excellent move. The W also retains the camera port.
I picked one up at Micro Center tonight. It was in stock just a few hours ago. They had many bins full. Looks like at least a few thousand. Its selling at $10 for one. $15 for 2 or more and $20 for 6 or more. So instead of being cheaper in quantity, you are penalized for buying more.
Here's how the antenna works:
