I would recommend CompTia's A+ (hardware) and Network+ courses. Those will give you the basics. You can probably (if you don't want to purchse the course materials), find an outline of the courses online, and then google the individual points to learn about them. From there, I would recommend getting a hold of old equipment and creating your own network with webservers, file servers, proxys, firewalls, and learning how each part communicates with the others.

I believe the CompTia Network+ class is a single course. As I said before, I would recommend looking through the descriptions of those to get outlines (probably found by Googling "comptia a+ network+" or some variation), and then input each bullet point into Google as it appears on the outline. Or you could go to somewhere like Amazon.com and search for "A+ book" or "network+ book". CompTia puts out their own study guides for the courses, so you could buy one of those as well.

CompTia is the company that does both the A+ and Network+ certifications.

A+ is hardware, Network+ is networks.

The MCSE is actually a collection of 5 test evaluating Windows XP, Server 2003, i believe 2 sort of "general/your choice" classes, and a third I'm forgetting. However, completing all the courses will result in the 5 separate certifications and the MCSE cert. The MCSE is mostly Windows networking and device setup - how to create a domain, user management, device installing, troubleshooting, Windows tools and protocols, etc..., though that will also vary depending what other courses you take as your general electives.

The Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) course is full of useful information regarding networking and protocols. It's a little pricey for the materials, however, but if you pursue the courses you could learn quite a lot.

It's difficult to say. At some point you're going to have to do research here, so I'll let you google places you can take those tests on your own ;). It also depends if you want to go into a Microsoft shop and be an admin, or if you want to be a network engineer (which is usually either a consultant or router jockey). I think you're at the point where you need to look over the course materials yourself, and then compare them with the jobs you are going for, and see which ones you think you need.

As archnomagus said, the CCNA will cover some of the things that the Network+ course will as well, but also give you exposure to Cisco routers/switches/IOS. That is worth looking into as well.

CCNA - Cisco Certified Network Associate - is the 'industry standard' for networking and definitely a good choice.

The only other thing I would suggest is getting a spare Cisco switch/router or (if you are unable) a spare computer (even of poor quality), and installing an open source router on it. This will let you implement the concepts you learn in the course.

Also, in the future, if a thread has not been replied to within 3 to 6 months, please start a new thread with your question ;)
