I would probably consider a network ADMIN role and not an engineer role. You dont want to get in over your head. If a network goes down everyone will be looking at you to bring it back up.

If you are lacking experience, 2 days is a near impossible time frame to cover the large amount of material you will need to know as a network engineer. If you end up interviewing with an IT person and not an HR person, they will be able to tell if you lack experience after a few questions.

No matter your scenario, it's always good to brush up on things before an interview. Your best bet would be to pull out your books/study guides/etc and cross reference those with the items that you are lacking knowledge on. They probably won't ask you complex questions, but a lot of little questions to verify your knowledge/experience.

Be upfront with what you know and the items you lack experience with. They will be able to tell if you are fabricating your experience. If you are lacking, you may still get hired and trainied if you make a good impression.
