Hi Benedict,

For networking in general (and in detail), check out:

  * TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1: The Protocols, by W. Richard Stevens,
    Addison-Wesley; ISBN: 0-201-63346-9

  * Interconnections, Second Edition: Bridges, Routers, Switches, and
    Internetworking Protocols, by Radia Perlman, Addison-Wesley;
    ISBN: 0-201-63448-1

Cheers,
-Al
