Introduction to routers

Can you give me the basics of now to install, configure, maintain and monitor a router (ex: Cisco) in a LAN/WAN environment, or recommend a place for me to start.
A good book that you can purchase that explains how routers work for beginners is "Introduction to Cisco Internetworking." The author is Steven Thomas and you can purchase the book on www.amazon.com for only $31.49.
