To answer Virginia's question, I would use:

Log into the network.

Having seen "login" enough times on the command line, I've come to think of
it as a noun (equivalent to seeing "Name" next to a blank line on an credit
card application form, for example). You're asking for an action, so "log"
is a verb.

"Log in to the network" somehow doesn't look right, in my opinion.
