Start with the OSI[1] model to grasp the fundamentals, next make sure
you have a basic knowledge of how TCP/IP addressing works[2]. To get
an understanding of routing-protocols, begin with RIP[3] and perhaps
run your own RIP-lab by using Quagga[4] software on a Linux box. That
will get you off the streets for a weekend :)
