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.

My network card is detected and running and when I use the Network tool in System->Administration I can set my eeid and password and everything seems to work but Idon't get an IP-address and the card cannot find any AP.
I have tryed NetworkManager but it dosen't show my wireless connection and when I doubleclick the nm-icon nothings happen (some forums tells me to do so and then choose add connection).
I then tried WIFI-radar and it shows the wireless connection but I can't do anything with it.
I then tried another graphical tool that I don't remember the nam for but that tool shows me the wireless connection and it shows me the signal strength which is good but I still don't get an IP-address and therefore I cannot connect to Internet for example.
I'm stuck and I cannot find any solution to my problem at any forum. From what I can tell I don't have to use any wrapper for windows driver or wap_Supplicant with my settings and hardare...
For whats it worth I can use the card perfectly in Windows so there is no router failure or other hardware failure...
