I suggest the following topics and general order of study:

a) TCP/IP networking (IP addresses, masks, gateways, routers, etc.

b) Domain Name Service

c) DHCP

d) Web Browsing

f) Proxies, Security, NAT (Network Address Translation)

Hope this helps.

Another site full of networking stuff for for beginners is here:

   http://www.practicallynetworked.com/

I've tried to give links to places with information for beginners, although some of the sites contain advanced stuff also. Try too stick to overviews and introductions until you've got a grasp on the basics.
