All of the commands that you need on Linux are described in your man pages. You could try 'man -k network', for example. Or maybe 'man -k eth' or 'man -k wireless', depending upon what you are interested in. (Sorry, that's not a website )

You could also try linuxhomenetworking, which I think is well explained, and is indeed a website.

Be aware that there are differences -mostly minor- between distros, and you don't say which distro you want, if there is one in particular. Or actually, even if this is specifically a linux question, but I assume that it is.

And, if you want more stuff on websites, the application of a search engine to the problem will always turn up more sites. But I suspect that you have more than enough to read already.

You learn something new everyday. I didn't know about the -k flag of man. I'm sure I tried to man man in the past, but most probably it was just for fun to see what happens (just like what happens if you google google?, etc), LOL

It's brilliant. Thanks.

OK, thanks for that, but you've got me started now...

'man -k' looks to be exactly equivalent to 'apropos', so you can use either and get the same result. Which is handy, if you can't remember how to spell apropos.

Additionally, if you find that 'man -k etwor' (or something) gives you more output than you want to look through, you could try 'man -k etwor | grep -i ether' (go on, try both!) for a list of commands that concern the text string etwor (...commonly found in the words network, networks, networking...) and contain the string ether (...ethernet, eth0, eth1,...) in the one line summary.

I feel that, in an ideal world, all the newbies would be forced to do this a few times before they are allowed to post a 'what's the command for...and why would I use the command line, its old-fashioned' post, but then I'm old and curmudgeonly.
