I will begin studying for a CCNA exam come January.  (New Year's resolution.)  Wondering if anyone has a suggestion on a decent model Cisco router to purchase on eBay for my SoHo?  Thanks.

2900 series should work, or even a virtual environment.  Much of the exam is theory and knowing your way around the CLI.  Or at least it was for me.  I didn't even use physical hardware, other than to see how it looks in a live environment as well, with some of the show commands.

No need for a physical router. Just use GNS3, EVE-NG, or find a copy of Packet Tracer online.
