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 have been wrestling with my microsoft network driver for the last couple of hours trying to get it set up and was hoping that somebody might be able to help me.
my iwlist eth0 scan gives me this
Address: 00:20:e0:02:3a:4f (except the letters are in caps of course)
Frequency:2.452GHz (relates to channel 9, at least that's what iwlist says)
Encryption key: on
Bit Rate: 1Mb/s
(in this order if it makes a difference 1,2.2,5,11,22,6,9,12,18,24,36,48,54)
my iwconfig returns the following for eth0
IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"ACTIONTEC" Nickname:"ACTIONTEC"
Mode:Managed Bit Rate:54Mb/s Tx-Power=16 dBm
RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Encryption key:(my key (at least I'm pretty darn sure it's my key))
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise Level:190
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:6298 Missed beacon:0
okay so I'm about pulling my hair out trying to get any netwrok connection when I ping I get connect: Network is unreachable error. I'm not sure what else I can do.
If it helps I'm using open WEP with a 128 bit key and linuxant driver wrappers on a Microsoft (requisite hiss and/or boo) MN-720 adapter. How can I get the WEP to work with the system.
have you registered with linuxant for either the free 30 day trial or the paid subscription? i noticed when i tried driverloader that it wouldnt work without it. that's why i switched to ndiswrapper instead, free and easy (worked within 5 minutes on 5/6 systems so far for me)
