I would recommend starting with the basics, and see if any one area interests you the most. There are so many different parts to networking, it can’t hurt to have an idea of what interests you the most. This link has a free eBook download….happy learning!

    Though u did not reveal that u have any certs / experience on the same. If I start writing it goes for numerous time.... it is not possible to explain here in one/two sentences. However, some good references can help u of course. Though u have to gather some good books/  read magazines on the same topic and of course do a global course if possible.

    Welcome to ITKE, larrytuns. SearchNetworking.com would also be a good place to start learning more about networking technologies. 

    In addition to technical tips, the site includes definitions of all tech associated with networking.
