Welcome to the sandbox! I started with Linux perhaps 5 years ago. It is a fine tool and a lot of fun as well.
Here is a book I like very much:
Scott Granneman, Linux Phrasebook.
It does not contain everything you want to know but the most commonly used CLI commands are there. I keep it right next to my machine.
In addition the tutorials here are quite useful:
Don't forget that for every Linux command there is a Man page, so if you do not understand cp, just enter man cp.
In my experience people on this forum are very helpful. The key is to supply enough information for them to know how to respond. Using a title that gives readers a clue as to the problem helps as well when people are scanning lists.
is my pet favourite.
If you have a wireless card (?) which isn't working, have you looked in 'additional drivers' to see if you need a driver for it?
