To be perfectly honest the best and most easily accessible source of direct information on the subjects you are asking about is probably just going to wikipedia and grabbing a general understanding of them.
It would be after that I would actually worry about learning to use them.
I will say this much it's very likely you will never use a tunnel adapter.
Some basics though.
DNS means Domain Name Server , This basically connects a server with a ip address, thus allowing you to connect to it easily using a website address (nameserver)
in the most basic of terms a modem connects a computer or network directly to the internet.
A router connects a group of computers to a modem.
Routers are really only useful as local networking gear or AP's.
Though some of the newest gear do actually have both devices in one package.
Subnet and gateway are both just related to general network and isp connection data and will probably be explained much better by wiki than me.
