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.

you don't just "guess", you need to understand. Ultimately they need to be *correct* not just the same. your local subnet is very very likely to need to be a /24, so 255.255.255.0 but you should know this already. You also need to look at a client and see how it's configured after receiving a lease, including looking at it's actual lease file, in somewhere like /var/lib/dhcp/leases, i forget what it's normally called.

it makes me wonder about the .dhcp. and if that would matter or not. and why when i have just the wireless router plugged in to the modem i get a completely different ip in its settings..
if i could understand why's and how's this would be a lot easier. but the online guide and my server book dont troubleshoot this problem .....
from what you understand? you're giving out an IP address, you clearly need to know what that IP address is don't you? I get the impression it doesn't even exist... What is 192.168.1.1 if the dhcp server is 192.168.1.2? That option needs to be whatever the router IP on that subnet is. That's the default gateway.
