I am looking to build a CCNA lab the will cover for CCNA and the add-ons for CCNA (Voice, Security, etc.) I have read tons of info about the different equip to get but it ranges a lot. I was wondering what would be suggested to start my own CCNA lab at home. I currently have a 28U rack running 4 Dell SC1425. Do you recommend buying in kits or individually?
From what I gather:
3x routers (2600XM series with IOS 12.4)
3x switches (2950 with IOS?)
cables and adapters.
Any suggestions would be great! Thanks
