Hi guys,

 

I already know some things about networking but its not advanced. Is there any website (preferably video training) that teaches this subject? I know there is some Cisco training online but its not what I want. I want to be able to setup a network for a commercial places. I want to know how to setup modems, wireless routers,  switches, VPNs and etc etc.

 

I'm looking forward to your responses.

If you're going to be setting up something for a commercial place you REALLY need proper training, such as the Cisco training.  The way a personal network is configured and the way a business network is configured are as different as night and day.

 

You could try ITPro TV.  I personally haven't used them.  They advertise on the Security Now! podcast.  The Security Now podcast can teach you a lot also.

I worked about 2 years in the small to medium business(SMB) before getting formal training. Everything I learned was based on fixing the problems that would come up that I wouldn't know how to fix. I used a notepad document as a copy/paste dump for any links, tip or procedure that seemed important. On my off time I would dig into the problem deeper, making sure I understood it's core aspects. I found learning this way gave me a deeper passion for the topic in general, which made me retain it more then my formal (and much more expensive) training.

You can also try https://www.cbtnuggets.com/. Depending on the commercial environment you will run into different equipment at each site. Having a good grasp of fundamental network and routing protocols will help you troubleshoot any network. Each device manufacture has a different way of accomplishing the same task. Cisco VPN's are different then sonicwall but they use the same concepts.
