    What area are you interested in working in (Microsoft, Cisco, Firewalls, etc.)?

    The way you get into InfoSec is by leveraging your current experience and skills. For you that would be IT and netadmin. Concentrate on the learning security aspects of those fields and getting the related certifications (CCNA: Security, CCSP, SSCP, etc.). Emphasize the security parts of your job on your resume.

    CCNA > CCNA: Security > CCSP this will be the sequence.

    Consider doing the CCNP as well.

    CISSP can fit in anywhere, but you'll need four years of experience to qualify (it's five by default, but one of your other certs will take a year off).

    I would suggest that the SSCP is the next step after Security+. The SSCP is a generic security technology cert and very much what you would expect a Security++ cert to be. The CEH is highly specialized in only a very specific area of InfoSec. Getting the CEH is akin to getting a cert in a specialized field or technology, like network firewalls or electronic forensics.
