Computer Networks (4th Edition ) by Andrew S. Tanenbaum, ISBN-10: 0130661023 is a good Advance Book for Networking,

Network Security Fundamentals, ISBN-10: 1587051672 is a Good Network Security Book from CISCO.

TCP/IP for Dummies, ISBN-10: 0470450606

Thanks Nuwan!niyamai!

Agreed, Tannenbaum's books are best. Boring, but good. Its a course textbook for me,

Ive got third edition. The newest (5th?) edition covers wifi and stuff, gets rid of some obsolete stuff
