    Sorry I didn't know where exactly to post this...

    I'm wanting to learn all about home networking (correct term?). modems, routers, ports, DMZ, bridge mode, IPv6, DHCP allocation, DNS, channel bonding, WAN, LAN, wifi, I could keep going on and on and on. Is there a defacto guide out there?

    The thing is, I know the basics but the basics are a very naive understanding of networking. I want a thorough explanation of networking and all its facets. Also, I'm in the process of trying to setup a home network and I'm quite lost. I could prob set it up and it'll work fine but I wanna really understand how it works. Is there any resource, guide, college textbook lol?

    You should do a CCNA certification. Your mind and body is ready...
