I agree generally with the above. For some background lectures, I would suggest Leonard Susskind's lectures. A highly entertaining lecturer and knows his stuff. But again, the above is true in that the only way to truly understand physics is to do some problems. To combine it with IT, you can try doing simulations of things. Alternatively try your hand at some masters level projects. (eg. these)

I live about 300m down the road from the nearest phone cabinets I've seen and I get about 60Mb/s
