web to network administrator

Do some study of books on network configuration and engineering. This will gove you background to either take courses like offered by Cisco. CCNE and similar certification will get you there. You should not have to start from scratch but itdepends on your current experience.

Another track might be to look for a web developer job at companies that do network management solutions, or companies that write software for network equipment.

Pay rate varies of course. If you are a goodweb dev then you will take a pay cut for maybe a year or two until you have some networks experience. A good network engineer can earn more than a web guy I believe. Check out some job boards.

Good luck.
