- What are Networks and how they work
- Network Addresses and their concept
- Protocols governing the Network
- The Networking Models - OSI & IP
- Virtual Networks and Subnets
- Port Addressing and measures of Port Security
- How services of the Internet works - DHCP, DNS & NAT
- Making your own Virtual Home Lab
- Wireless Networking and it's security

- I'll walk you through, step-by-step, if anything need to be installed.
This course focuses on deeply understanding the Fundamentals of Networking in the I.T. sector and how networking devices and services work in real-world scenarios. Even if you have no clue about networks, this course will provide all the starting knowledge you need to understand how networking devices work, how networks communicate, how they are managed, and much more.
What will you cover throughout the course journey?
We'll start from "What is a Network?" moving to "How the DNS works?" then to "How the Subnets and VLAN work?" and much more. Moreover, during the course, you'll also learn how to handle and configure the networking devices to use them as you want.
We'll not stop there, after you're done analyzing all this, later in the course, you'll learn how to exploit the wi-fi handshake for "Cracking the Wi-Fi security keys."
There are numerous lectures making sure that you know how to configure networking devices practically, how to set up the virtual machines in Virtual Box, how packets are captured and examined with CISCO Packet Tracer, learning with network simulation tools like GNS3, and much more.
The course is divided into several sections to absorb the most of them, not at once, but with progressions. So,
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to understand the following:
What are Networks and their types?
Difference between Network Bandwidth and Latency
How Networking Devices- Bridge, Switch & Router work
What is Logical and Physical Network Address?
The real difference between Public vs Private IP addresses
How the Network Address Translation(NAT) works
What is the purpose of Subnets in a network?
Collision Domains and Broadcast Domains - what's the difference?
How Subnet finds the Network & Host addresses?
Port scan with Nmap port scanner
The idea behind DHCP assigning you IP addresses
Working of the Domain Name System(DNS)
Setting up Virtual Home Labs on your system
Wi-Fi and Access Points
Cracking Wi-Fi password using KRACK Attack
Steps of implementing Wi-Fi Security
and the list continues...
Make sure you take a pen, divide the page, left for topic name and right for what you understood. This is how I rinse and repeat my stuff, the old-school way!
After finishing the course, you will be confident enough to explain and clarify all the networking stuff to yourself as well as to those who are in need of some solid and clear fundamentals. So now you can tickle the person next to you with "Hey, you know this?... or that...?". I'll be more than happy to see you helping others as I do.
Join me in this course on starting your I.T. journey!!!
All the Best and see you in the course.

Hi! I am Mohd. Raqif Warsi. I'm a learner like you. Coming to the point - I came to Udemy to help thousands of people like you by contributing something to what they need. I love to grow my knowledge and at the same time, spreading it to others, serving them with my best.
I started all of this with merely no experience but with only one thing, a pure determination to learn, grow and succeed with whatever I learn. This took some time and will take a lot more.
Technically, I'm a Web Developer with hands-on ReactJS, MongoDB, ExpressJS, and NodeJS. I love building new things out of technology. If you want more stuff from any of these topics, please let me know. But you know what? Networking and Cyber Security started fascinating me. I took the dip in the I.T. sector because of them and here I am perfecting the essentials of I.T., which is obviously one of my goals.
If I've said "I love to help" enough, let me know if my courses are helping you out. I also admire to hear your reviews and the advancement you'll make in your journey. If you're ever stuck at any-place, any-time in my courses or beyond, just leave a message for me and I'll be there, all yours. To see you achieve your goal is also one of my goals.
