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.

OK, I am configuring a new FC3 workstation and have it connected via a 100MB eth0 to a WG614 Wireless router directly (ie via Cat5).
I have the link light, I have been served a DHCP addy and can ping the router.
The WG614 (latest firmware) can be accessed via it's IP addy in the browser from WinXP and 98 on the LAN. When that connection is initiated a popup window asks for a username and password. Then the admin page/s are available via the browser.
I have attempted to connect to this from Mozilla and it just times out. I don't know where to start. I have internet running (evidently) and have done nothing special that I can think of that would prevent a local HTTP connection to this Router. If I can ping it and my browser is working for internet access I can't think why (prior to connecting to the internet) I can't directly attach to the router via the IP address.
I am wondering if it is to do with the way the login box is served up by the router and is WinCentric or something?
Can anyone suggest an approach please?
I need this connection to allow my workstation to be accessed from the other WINXP boxes that connect to the router wirelessly.
