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 DSL which is routed through a D-Link DI-704 Broadband Router. Connected to that router is a network printer, a desktop computer and a laptop computer. I have Mandrake Linux 9.1 loaded on my laptop.
I have been unsuccessful in getting my laptop configured to connect to the internet when the caat 5 cable is connected to the router. When I connect the DSL directly from the modem to the laptop, I can connect without any problem, but when I place the router between the moden and the laptop, I cannot get an internet connection.
The DL-704 Gateway (I believe, since this is what the manual says) is 192.168.0.1.
The IP for my DSL is dynamic rather than static and at the moment is 126.96.36.199.
When I enter 192.168.0.1 into my browser, the DL-704 Device Information is displayed. The critical information displayed is:
IP Address: 188.8.131.52 PPPoE Connection
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.255
Domain Name Server: 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11
The IP Address of my printer is static and is 192.168.0.12 and the subnet Mask is 255.255.255.0
The IP address on my desktop and laptop are set by DHCP and are both 192.168.0.XXX
Can anyone give me the help I need to set up my internet connection?
