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'm having trouble getting my wireless to work on my Dell Inspiron 2200.
I had no problem installing the driver through "Windows Wireless Drivers" GUI and skipped the whole ndiswrapper process completely.
Upon typing 'iwconfig' in the terminal I get the following:
IEEE 802.11g ESSID: off/any
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point 00:00:00:00:00:00
Bit Rate:54 Mb/s Tx-Power: 25 dBm
RTS thr:2347 B Fragment thr:2346 B
Encrytion key:xxxx:xxxx:xx Security mode:restricted
Power Management: off
Link Quality:100/100 Signal level:-10 dBm Noise level:-256 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
(where the encryption key is an actual hex key)
When i type 'ifconfig' i actually get the HWaddr (or access point i assume?)
My problem is i can't get it to find my wireless router, (ESSID = "Wireless")
and it won't pick up my HWaddr.
The KWiFi Manager shows a connection spead of 54Mb/s and 100% signal strength but says "Connected to network: any"
I have no idea what's going on, i just want to know the easiest quickest way to get this up and running and it's driving me nuts!
Hi, I'm new in Linux.
I aslo have Dell 2200 with this 1370 wireless card.
after i use ndiswrapper to install the driver(bcmwl5a.inf) for the card and use DMESG to check, I got the message that the driver can't initialize the device (can't request the IRQ 1). Can anybody tell me why?
