If you are going into CEH then automatically you are going into security because security encompasses CEH. You have to be a network engineer first before going into security.

Actually you do not have to be a network engineer first before going into security. Even as a CEH, one can be a java programmer and get into CEH from a point of pen testing the web applications.

May be I should have said it in this way:
You will be better off going into security through networking, because security is all about access now we are talking of networking. You see security better from a networking perspective. I can imagine a security guy without the knowledge of IPs. IF You have the choice going into security not through networking, please dont make that choice.

All i can say is that you need to be a good programmer to know how a hacker thinks.
Then secondly, you need to know basic security threats and breaches; thats why i'd recommend you take a look at CCNA Security books.
