Chapter 3: Connecting to the Internet


Connecting to a network in general, and to the Internet in particular, has come a long way since the days of manually setting up network cards and hacking modem dialup scripts. Fedora 2 offers a vastly improved configuration interface while retaining the flexibility that enables users to roll up their sleeves and dive into the configuration files should the need arise (rarely, if ever). This chapter looks at the following aspects of connecting to the Internet:

  • Connecting to the Internet through an ISP

  • Dealing with network devices, connections, and profiles

  • Configuring and using the software you need to access the Internet

  • Considering the safety of your machine while connected to the Internet

  • Contending with common problems related to connecting to the Internet
