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.

I have a home network set up using a Belkin F5D6230-3 wireless/"physical" router. I have 3 computers:
· one wired Windows XP (which we can ignore),
· an ooold laptop Compaq Presario 1200 running Xubuntu 5.10 (Ubuntu+Xfce) connected through a Belkin F5D6050 wireless network adapter, and
· my PC running Slackware 10.2, wired to the router.
I want to transfer some MP3's from the PC to the laptop. First I tried scp and it worked perfectly, with ~600kbps rates, until suddenly, after the say 15th file, it slowed down until it said "stalled". Then I kept trying but nothing. I tried secpanel but it didnt help either. Then I read about rsync, so I issued
rsync -avz --ignore-existing 192.168.2.8:My\ Music/LoungeChillOutJazz/ . (192.168.2.8 is my PC, *.31 is the laptop).
That worked fine. Then the same thing happened as with scp, it just stopped working after it transferred some songs. Except that now my router kicks my PC out. I can't even ping the router. When I got the connection back (by waiting some 5 minutes and issuing sudo /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 stop; sudo /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 start at the terminal), I tried rsync'ing the other way around (from the PC to the laptop: rsync -avz --ignore-existing My\ Music/LoungeChillOutJazz/ 192.168.2.31:.) and now it doesn't even get through ONE file, and still kicks me out. The old laptop keeps its connection to the router intact through all of this. I am able to download files to my PC from, for example, BitTorrent.. It's this intranet that's not working right.
I read that it could be some bad mtu settings so i set them on both computers to 576 as suggested (ifconfig [wlan0/eth0] mtu 576), but not much happened.
I don't know what is going on, but it's really annoying.. Can anyone help me with this?

Well, about the mtu settings, they default on both computers is 1500, but the page I read (can't find it again) suggested to change it to 576 on both computers. That didn't work. Anyway, I finished transferring all the MP3's I wanted (I tried again and it worked!). I couldn't post the ps -A from the laptop because the terminal I ran it in crashed. I will be going away from home for a couple of weeks, so I won't be able to answer anymore. Thanks for trying to help though!
