Linux "One of the greatest features of the Linux operating system is its networking stack. It was initially a derivative of the BSD stack and is well organized with a clean set of interfaces. Its interfaces range from the protocol agnostics, such as the common sockets layer interface or the device layer, to the specific interfaces of the individual networking protocols. This article explores the structure of the Linux networking stack from the perspective of its layers and also examines some of its major structures."

I checked out the link found the article to be a rather lightweight introduction to the tcp/ip protocol stack. It is appropriate for those new to networking.

If you are looking for something more "bare metal", you'll need a good book. Online articles just don't have enough depth. I like Steven's "Unix Network Programming".
