    Well, that should get you thru CCNA quite nicely

    So how much did you spend spend in total on the entire lab, about $350?

    Not bad at all.

    btw. because you picked the 2507 you don't need an Ethernet transceiver for that one...

    Here's the link for the ConfigMaker is mentioned earlier:
    http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/...754/index.html
    Although it is not part of the CCNA exam, it is a great way to get started and try out some different setups.

    The newer Cisco switches use version 12.x, just like the Cisco routers do. The maximum version for the 1900 series is 9.x, I think.

    I have very little experience with switches, and it may be wise to upgrade to 9.x, but I don't think it will make a lot of difference for the commands required to know for the CCNA exam, if any difference at all.

    The Standard version can actually be downloaded from the Cisco site, but you have the Enterprise version (which is required for VLANs etc, but you probably knew that already), so make sure you upgrade to a newer version of the Enterprise edition, if you upgrade. Also make sure to check the memory requirements before upgrading.

    Upgrading a switch is pretty much as simple as upgrading a router, although care should be taken, and a backup of the current image as well

    Here are some docs that might help you further:

    You can make VLANs with just one switch... Check out the links on this page.

    Yeah it worked, Well i changed the password, but it seems to ask me


    At any point you may enter a question mark '?' for help.
    Use ctrl-c to abort configuration dialog at any prompt.
    Default settings are in square brackets '[]'.
    Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes]:

    everytime i restart it.. No big deal, i am not familiar with the IOS yet, so i think i just dont have it set up.

    I am trying to upgrade the memory now, but seems to always stay the same.

    I am using this page to help me
    http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/...00ug/maint.htm

    It shows a flash card slot next to the simm modules on my particular model 2514, but it seems Mine didnt get one.. You can see the soldier points, but nada...

    Anyway, are you sure it's not the simms i want to upgrade? Everytime i restart seems to say

    2500 processor with 2048 Kbytes of main memory

    No matter what i put in the dimm slot

    That's no problem, you got 8 MB flash now which is plenty.

    Anyway, are you sure it's not the simms i want to upgrade?
    I can't remembers saying you should put anything in a dimm slot. You need to replace the current DRAM SIMM at the top right as shown in the picture of the 2514 model on the page you linked to above.

    No matter what i put in the dimm slot
    There is no dimm slot in your router... at least there shouldn't be

    This is normal behaviour when there is no startup configuration. Once you go thru the Setup dialog, and at the end of it choose to save it to NVRAM, or manually save it using the command: copy run start it won't appear the next time you restart.

    As you found out, not all simms (brands) work.

    This is the one I was referring to in the PM:
    http://www.anthonypanda.com/product....d=21&opt_id=46
    Although it lists 2501-2524, I would contact him to check for the 2514 just in case.

    what i did notice was that with some of those modules it would boot, without one it would not boot, and with 2 of them, it did not boot.

    very interesting..

    thanks for your time...

    Your most welcome.

    Interesting indeed. I've 'upgraded' the ram in a Cisco 2501 with non-Cisco memory once, those that didn't work didn't let it boot either. I think it was a Compaq simm that worked.

    I don't think that is likely since the current SIMM works.

    I was referring to the config-register setting, the last line of the output of the show version command. I noticed in your PM it is 0x2142, which means that after the password recovery, you did not set the value back to its original. Try the following:

    Router#conf t
    Router(config)#config-register 0x2102
    CTRL-Z
    router#copy run start
    router#reload

    Also i noticed no activity on the transiever and it is hooked to a nic in my comp
    Are you using a cross-cable?
