    It depends what do you want to do? Comptia network+ is a great point to start, but after you have achived it you need to quickly move to CCNA and then further, if you want to get to the decent position and money. If you will notice in the job specs, CCNA is becoming a standard requirement when looking for an admin positions.

    The Comptia Network+ is a decent introduction to networkig, but the Cisco CCENT covers all of the same material, and leads right into the CCNA. If you're looing at networking for a career move, then I'd stick with the CCNA track - from there you can either stay on the route/switch path and/or branch out to the CCNA specialties (Voice, wireless, security) - I vote CCENT/CCNA...
