Getting into networking is something you learn by doing it and doing it
Beginner networking tasks are setting up a network between two or more
machines all in the same network like 192.168.0.0/24.
Then try to put them in there own network and use route to let them talk
to eachother. like one machine in 192.168.0.0/24 and the second machine
in 192.168.1.0/24 and so on.
Then you can try to get things working using smaller network segments
like 192.168.0.1/29 and a network of 192.168.0.8 /29 and so on and make
sure they do not overlap and let them communicate, test with ping.
The second question is somewhat unclear to me.
Do you have multiple Nics in your machine? If so, you can use the second
NIC for testing.
The third question, ping is just a basic tool you can use to test basic
route is a tool to make sure that your network knows where to go if it
needs to go to an address not in your own network.
DNS is not so much networking, it just resolves names to IP addresses.
DHCP you can use to give hosts an IP address instead of giving them a
You can give an NIC or any interface like a bridge or a epair an ipv6
