Amy - If you want to truly work in pure Networking (designing and configuring networking hardware like switches and routers, etc) you will want to concentrate on Cisco certs. The A+ cert has value as a starter cert to get you used to computerized testing that is used by Cisco, Microsoft, COMPTIA and others.

The Security+ test would have value more if you were going to do PC and Server Systems Administration and Computing Security.

Networking is a good career. If you are serious about Networking Engineering I would skip A+, Security+, Network+ certification and focus on Cisco CCNA/CCNP/CCIE and Juniper JNCIA,JNCIE JNCIP,JNCIS. I recommend Cisco and Juniper. The other certifications you mentioned are ok but they will only hold you back if you are serious about Networking Engineer you should study Cisco and Juniper.
