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 think it is not a hardware problem because th computer is not so old and there also was internet running before fedora.But I think I have an Asus Motherboard (P5WD2 Premium), NIC is on board and everything runs fine until I installed fedora.
A tutorial or a "how to" would help me very much I think.
Old has nothing to with it, on the contrary. If there's any sort of hardware that prodcuces issues, it's the new - because the developers have not been able yet to include the drivers. My mobo is eight months old and, nope, no internet using Fedora. I do get internet out of the box when using other, more recent distros, though.
ASUS has been using a lot of REALTEK 8111/8168 NICS lately so if you could check whether that's what you have I can tell you exactly what to do.
Surely you must hava a manual somewhere so you can look up what's on the motherboard? I just checked google but I found different types of that motherboard and they have different NICS. I really can't offer any advice without knowing more.
OK, not a bad choice. Beforer doing so, however, you really need to figure out what's on you mobo. Once you know, use google and check which distro will run your NIC without a problem. The thing is that even Debian may not support your card...
I got my connection going on FC5 by disabling IPV6 in the browser.
To get Internet to work I had to put 'about:config' in the address bar of the browser (Firefox)and change the property of network.dns.IPV6 to true and then restart the browser.
This may be your problem; best of luck. Bye
