    I mean lets say you want to get a job involved in computer repair wouldnt you also need to know about networks too, to get a job in 1st line support?

    The N+ would probably help you land a job - but I doubt you'd really need it for pure "PC" repair jobs

    Not really, but then again, it does depend on the environment of the job in question.

    There are a few large organisations that will have A+ certified people (regardless of whether or not they have the Network+), this includes the likes of Dell. Dell Gold Technical Support team are A+ certified, and Dell advertises this - they don't mention the Network+. Also a lot of consumer support will only have the likes of the A+, sometimes not even that.
    Certifications: CITP, PGDip, BSc, HNC, LCGI, PTLLS, MCT, MCITP, MCTS, MCSE, MCSA:M, MCSA, MCDST, MCP, MTA, MCAS, MOS (Master), A+, N+, S+, ACA, VCA, etc... & 2nd Degree Black Belt
    WIP: MSc in Tech Management
