    Just got my first own 2600 router (2610 with a NM-4A/S so 1 eth and 4 serial ints), so it was time to update my lab, and at the same time revive this topic. I'll take some pics later, still waiting for a b2b cable to arrive. There are some other PCs connected to the WAP, and the 2501B will be connected to the 2610 or the 2950 sometimes, amongst other variations.

    Here's how my lab looked when I first started it.


    Three 2500's on top of a 2926 switch.

    Current lab is:

    2514 (set up as DSL router)
    2501 x 2
    2516 x 2
    2924
    2950-24
    2926 (rarely used)
    1924 (collecting dust)

    One of the routers is set up as a frame relay switch and I also have an ISDN simulator.

    A late reply, but: wow

    That 2926 you have there is quite a monster Netwurk
    What type of ISDN simulator do you have?

    yeah....it's the grad lab at my school part of electrical and computer engineering.....12 courses each @ 4000CAD covers the CCIE R&S track.

    only 40 or so people have access to that room besides the profs and GAs.....

    you would think you're paying for the equipment, but actually, all of those you see are free from Cisco.

    makes you think what they're doing with the money....

    ISDN simulator is an Arca Emutel Lite. They're not as much of a must for a lab as they once were, but ISDN is still in use in a lot of places.

    Here's the config from one end of the link

    !
    isdn switch-type basic-5ess
    !
    interface BRI0
    ip address 172.25.163.101 255.255.255.252
    encapsulation ppp
    dialer idle-timeout 600
    dialer string 384020
    dialer-group 1
    isdn spid1 3840000001 384020
    isdn spid2 3840000002 384030
    ppp authentication chap
    !
    dialer-list 1 protocol ip permit

    And yes, the 2926 is a monster.

    Thanks. I've set up several ISDN connections years ago, mainly for email, some for back up connections, 1600 series only. And even though I can imagine it's not a very fun topic for people to study, I kinda like ISDN. I've written some ISDN TechNotes for a previous version of the CCNA exam, of which especially the theory still applies: www.techexams.net/technotes/ccna/isdn.shtml
    I agree they aren't a must for a lab though, and considering the cost of the sim, the money is often better spend on an router or switch. But, routers/modules with ISDN interfaces are relatively cheap, and like you said, you can still expect to run in to a ISDN connection, so it's surely a nice 'toy' to have.

    The electrical bill maybe but if the profs and material is good it sounds like worth the money to me.

    here's my Boson Netsim CCNP lab (that I do my CCNA work on). It's got five 2950 switches, two 2600 routers connected via frame relay, and lets me test just about every routing protocol, as well as STP and intricate VLANs. It hasn't failed me yet

Makes the pressure much higher now that I'd have to rush to get CCNP. This stuff isn't easy to learn overnight. But I am definitely getting somewhere now.
    .
    heh, yours isnt bad either. Your cable management could use some work though....

    I was going to get 17xx too, but I was thinking they're going to be hard to stack. Where'd you get your 29xx switches? certificationkits also?

    Your camera phone actually has pretty good resolution, what's the make+model?

    As promised, I took some "real" photos, and not just visio drawings:

    Yup, the old routers need regular oil changes

    Here's my new lab. It's got point to multipoint frame relay connections with redundant dial on demand ISDN BRI to each remote site, running VLANS across the WAN, including access lists, some spanning tree environments, and all of that good stuff.

    This is what my lab looks like currently, I've invested about $2000 dollars over the past few years into it
    I dont really use it any more lol, I'll probably end up selling rack time, so I can make my money back off it lol...

    1x 2511-RJ 16/16
    2x 2610 64/16
    2x 2611 64/16
    1x 3620 NM-1E2W 64/20
    1x 3640 NM-4T NM-1E2W 128/32
    2x 3524XL

    Everything runs at least enterprise basic, frame switch running 12.4 ent+ I beleive.

    if i were you guys, i would get a pix instead of a 2500 to connect to the internet.

    router is responsible for routing, pix is responsible for firewall

    anyway, i am at work right now so can't take any pictures.

    but i got the following..

    1 x ISDN simulator
    2 x Cisco 2950 Switch
    1 x Cisco 1900 Switch
    2 x Cisco 2600 Router
    2 x Cisco 1720 Router
    4 x Cisco 2500 Router

    For the Cisco 2500's, i dedicated one of them as a access server, another one as a frame relay router, and other two as a ISDN router.

    Below is a diagram of my lab. The lightning bolts show the connections to a 2501 router that is set up as a frame relay simulator.

    Yeah.... but we don't want it to get out until we unload all our old hardware on eBay.

    There are several threads, but most of the links can be found in the consolidated post I made in the CCIE Sticky Poor Man's Guide to Building a CCIE Lab thread.

    HELLZxPHADER has a couple servers with bunches of network adaptors (those funky USB ones?) up and running talking to real switches and routers. I haven't gotten around to trying a PIX-4FE network card in one of my Linux Dynamips servers yet.

    Work Lab:

    http://infiltrated.net/WorkLab

    Pictures are so and so... Restated

    2 3512's w/Gigabit ports and cables, Merge 2000AF-RM ISDN simulator U and S/T interfaces, 2 3620's (VoIP/ISDN), 1 2620 (VoIP GW IOS), PIX, 1 2501 Router, 1 2511 (terminal server with 2 8 port breakout cables), 4000 w 8 Serial/ 2 Ethernet ports (Frame Relay), LS1010 w/MMF module, 2 4500-MMF ATM modules and serial and ethernet cards

    I actually have made another lab too with too much junk to list but its geared for CVOICE junk. Just waiting on this HP crap, then I will devote some time to that. Maybe 3 hours a week.

    Nice pictures of the work lab. I notice that you have a Merge 2000 isdn simulator sitting there. Merge has long disappeared it seems and left their machines in limbo. You don't happen to have a electronic version of the manual do you or know of a source for one? Getting tired of making mine do things by trial and error.
