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'm not getting any traction on this question in the Fedora or Newbie forums, so maybe this is the right place to start:
A very strange thing happened to me a couple of nights ago. I'm using Fedora Core 3. I checked up2date and found about five things to download and install, including an update to the kernel (don't remember any of the others). I've always accepted all changes, and I did the same this time. After everything was installed, I restarted the machine and now I can no longer see the WAN. I can see all the other machines on my LAN just fine. I rebooted under the old kernel and it still doesn't work. I rebooted under Win2K and that works fine, so there is no hardware problem.
I can ping any address on my LAN (192.168.1.x) and I get a perfect response. I can open the web pages associated with my router, my wireless access point, and my print server. When I try to ping any internet address, including my router's gateway, I get a "Connect: network is unreachable" message. It was working perfectly immediately before I ran up2date and installed the new packages, and it hasn't worked since.
Of course, I've rebooted numerous times and verified that my firewall is disabled. My router is providing DHCP services for me and assigning an IP address correctly, just as before.
Does anybody have any ideas? What could have happened? I'm seriously considering reinstalling the system today, but I hope it doesn't have to be as drastic as that.
Distribution: Fedors Core 3, Red Hat 9, Mandrake 8.1
I experienced the same problem recently. I could ssh into my newly updated FC3 2.6.10. I could ping inside my network, but not out. I noticed 2 problems one was that my [B}default route[/B] was gone. So I added it back:
