This is my first post in NW, so it's kind of ceremonial :) Let me introduce myself shortly. I am Lithuanian telecommunication engineering student and I’m looking forward for Cisco CCNA certification.
Okay, now the main part. I know there are so many articles, blogs ant other posts about CCNA lab and I know how this questioning should be annoying, but guys - it’s so important to talk about new studies with people who had already walked that path. I’ve read all Wendell Odom’s posts and blogs about mentioned lab, so I know a little bit what I need, but I’d like to hear NW users’ opinions for sure.
So, here is what I’m thinking about:
x1: 2621 with 2FE; memory: 16F/48D; IOS: 12.4 IP Base.
x2: 2620 with 1FE; memory: 16F/48D; IOS: 12.4 IP Base.
x1: 2924XL switch; memory: 4F/8D; IOS: 12.0-5.
I’m still wondering about 2950 switch, but I’m not sure if it’s worth its price.
I’m still a student, so my budged is not limitless. Let’s say, that 300 $ is maximum price for routers, switch, cables, shipping and etc.
Thank you for your shared opinions in advance.
