Since this is my second attempt with the Arduino, I am regarded as a new beginning.
Does anyone have a suggestion to get started? A simple guide, really basic guide.

My first attempt I found here http://www.hacktronics.com/Tutorials/arduino-1-wire-tutorial.html

Thank you in advance

Since the subject line said "ethernet", get an ethernet shield that uses the wiznet w5100 chip. Lots of code available for using this chip.

I ordered a " New ENC28J60 Ethernet Shield for Arduino " medn do not know much more than what is stated in the Ebay ad.
So if someone knows something more specific, come with tips.

Thank you in advance ""

Tip: You ordered the wrong ethernet shield for someone new to ethernet.

I would agree with PaulS, having "been there, done that".

But whether you decide to press ahead with the one you have, or get yourself a W5100 shield, there's beginner's stuff... really! (though it may not feel like it!) at...

Use a Wiznet chip based board, so you can make use of the new, official Ethernet library with proper support for DHCP, DNS etc. You will thank yourself for it !

I ordered the ethernet card and my Arduino duemilanove same day, and it was my first Order of the Arduino components.
Will order a new one if I can not find a way to use it.

What is so different about the Wiznet chip based boards?  I for one have one of the official Arduino Ethernet shields, but had planned on using the ENC chip on breadboard projects since none of my projects need to be faster than 10Mb/s  Is it a matter of different pins?  or is there something in the Wiznet chip that makes it special?

Yes. Built in support for a lot of stuff that makes the ENCJ chip harder to use, since that stuff is done in software, rather than hardware.

Built in support for what?  DHCP? DNS?  I'm sure those 2 options are nice to have, but I can get by without them.  I can easily put a sd card on my boards, and have a config file for that.  My router only supports DHCP for I think 32 hosts?  So I have plenty of space for static IP addresses.  SSL would be nice, but I'm guessing I personally just want to connect to the network and talk to the house server.  If I use the ENCJ how hard is it going to be to use the ethernet libraries have they changed that much?  Should I grab an earlier copy from the github repo? and if so what's the best one to get?

TCP/IP for one thing.

No and no. These are software features.

SSL would be nice
On an Arduino? Not realistic.

Which ones? The ones that come with the IDE? Those are specifically for Wiznet-equipped boards.

Why? None of the "official" library versions have supported the ENCJ boards.
