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.

At every say 2-3 hours, my internet connection will just disconnect and I have to reboot the computer to get it back working. This is really annoying and I'm sure there is a way to juste restart that?! I tried /etc/init.d/networking restart but it doesnt work.
matt@AQUARIUS:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
[sudo] password for matt:
* Reconfiguring network interfaces...Ignoring unknown interface wlan1=wlan1.
[ OK ]
And regarding the
There is nothing in there regarding my wireless device when it disconnects. By the way, it doesn't disconnects, it just stop transfering data FROM and TO. Meaning, I'm still connected. But when I just disconnect and try to reconnect, it never does.
If you try 'ifconfig' after boot and after the connection has gone, do you get the same result? Do you get your ip via a dhcp lease and is it possible that the lease is expiring (you may want to try starting the dhcp client program in debug mode so that it will log events to syslog so that you see from that what dhcp thinks it is doing...in this case, you'd probably see "requesting new lease" and then nothing happen?)
Are you using network manager (which, I have to admit, I use and occasionally have issues with concerning suspend and resume, and is sometimes alleged to be buggy)?
I'm gonna take a look into ifconfig to see if the outputs matches. Regarding Network Manager (Yes I do use it), is there an alternative for gnome?
Also, I noticed that when a torrent client (Deluge and Ktorrent) is running, it happens, but not when they are not running (They don't run at the same time, but I've tried switching client earlier because I thought Ktorrent was the problem)
K Thanks guys, My question NOW, is How did you find out WHERE the key was? Did you just add the package name + .gpg and then the normal command to add a key, or was it written soemwhere on their website and I didn't find it?
