Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

These settings are identical to my Windows computers, with the exception of IP address, and can connect to the internet fine.
I can ping other computers on the network, including the router, and can also access the web control pnel of the router via the linux box.
But pinging any computer or website on the internet side of the router just fails with an "Unknown Host" message.
Should also point out that I had no problems at all accessing the internet before these network changes.
I have tried changing the settings in 'netconfig' to use my routers DHCP server instead of using a static IP. This hasn't helped, and it is not listed in the router 'DHCP Clients' list, along with my other computers.
I think my wlan configuration is ok because "ifup wlan0" makes no problems. It just doesn't get up at boot time. I think /etc/network/interfaces is processed, cause other interfaces are up, only wlan0 is ignored.
