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 am running Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell Inspiron 1501 and when I upgrade or clean install to Ubuntu 11.04 onto my computer, the WiFi stops working. Does anyone have any ideas that I could try to solve this problem? Thank you.
Distribution: Debian Testing, Stable, Sid and Manjaro, Mageia 3, LMDE

It is the network manager applet (nm). Should be in your upper right hand corner of the screen. Depends on the icon theme you are using as to what it looks like. Could be a pair of overlapping monitors or a male an female cable ends (some others too), just cursor over them and you should get some text that is related to your current connection.
