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.

system-config-network - turn "Activate at Boot" Off
If you know what a valid IP address & mask could be, set them and turn DHCP off.
after boot, see if it went ahead and connected (even though you said not to).
if it didn't, use system-config-network to activiate eth0 (if that is the correct device).
over the weekend, the router went south again.
lights still on, the adsl modem still lit, but no traffic.
the windows box also plugged into the router could not get it to respond.
hard boot the router, it comes back, only to get locked up again.
i really think this is an ipv6 router compatibility issue.
maybe a mix of ipv4 (windows box) and ipv6 (linux box) makes it puke.
my router is a siemens/efficient/speedstream - i mistakenly said it was a linksys before.
check now to see if they have any notes on it.
