Can anybody suggest good websites that can assist with building a network from the ground up. I am very interested in maintaining my knowledge in this respect and as yet have not managed to find a site that caters for me. I would greatly appreciateany assistance that anyone could offer.

Thanking you in advance

There are some sites such as www.zdnet.com that you can look at, but the best thing you could do is get a good book on networking and study it. Then, you can use different sites on the net to enhance what you've learned, instead of trying to learn everything from the net. As far as a good book, most books that prepare you for either Microsoft's Networking Essentials exam or the Network+ exam will help you a great deal. Hope this helps.

The above 2 sites should help you out you don't mention what your skill level is or how large a network you want to build.

The CISCO and 3Com sites should help you out.
One big thing to remember if you have a small network look for Hubs Switches Routers etc... that have livetime warantees and that are expandabe if you think you may ever need to grow. Don't forget to get on the mailing lists for all the free seminars you can find in your area.....

In addition to zdnet (excellent site!) you are also using another great tool right now which is this TechRepublic site. Subscribe to their tips or list serves for additional information. Novell and Microsoft both have a wealth of information on networking, and both also have e-mail subscriptions available. Also try training sites (some are free) such as gocertify.com, cramsession, and comptia for more information.

ALthough you don't give a whole lot of information, you could start with the major vendors: Microsoft, Novell, Cisco, 3Com, etc.. It may require some digging, but you should be able to find the information you're looking for. As far as generic sites, with more generic info, there are thousands - too many to try and list. Some are good; most are crap - stick with the major ones.
