This is an introductory course on computer networking, specifically the Internet. It focuses on explaining how the Internet works, ranging from how bits are modulated on wires and in wireless to application-level protocols like BitTorrent and HTTP. It also explains the principles of how to design networks and network protocols. Students gain experience reading and understanding RFCs (Internet protocol specifications) as statements of what a system should do. The course grounds many of the concepts in current practice and recent developments, such as net neutrality and DNS security.

I have just finished this course . It was a great experience. Before taking this course I though I know this stuff . But Phil and Nick has opened my eyes. Additionally the guest lectures by Vint Cerf and others added a new dimension to the course.
