My feeling was that it would be ネットワーク管理者（かんりしゃ） and Wikipedia confirmed that.

what does the small "shi" mean after the Ne? how is this different than a hyphen?
That's not a small "shi", that's a small "tsu". The technical name for it is "sokuon", and it indicates the doubling of the following consonant. So ネト, ネート, and ネット are "neto", "neeto", and "netto", respectively. The doubling indicates a pause of sorts before pronouncing the consonant (except for "ss", which is simply held longer than "s").
Also, just so you know, the ー is not called a "hyphen", but rather a "long vowel mark".
EDIT: Bah, I didn't see I was beaten to it 'cause the responses were on the second page. Oh well. ^^;
