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.

My Linux (Novel 10.1) won't connect to the internet through my D-link router. I am not using the wireless feature, but I think that a port is not open to the Linux machine. When I removed my router and connected the Linux machine directly to the cable modem my connection worked fine.
Can anyone tell me what to do with the D-link router that will allow the Linux machine to pass through?
You would have to be a bit more specific, there are a lot of things that could be the problem. It seemed that you were suggesting that one particular port was closed, if that is so, other services should still be accessible. What ports are not working?
It could also be a DHCP issue, MAC filtering issue, and a number of other things.
To access the web interface to control the router, you should open your browser and go to your router's IP address.
To come up with a fix to your issue, you're going have to give a little more information.
In a super terminal window I typed /sbin/rcnetwork
Usage: /sbin/rcnetwork <action? [<config>] [<interface>] [-o <options>]
options: [on]boot, hotplug,manual,check,debug,fake,nm,netcontrol
typelist: space seperated list of interface types
skiplist: space seperated list of interfaces to skip for 'start'
<config>, <interface> and options [on]boot,hotplug,manual have no effect if service network is controlled by NetworkManager.
