    2 x 1760
    1 x 1760-VPN/K9 (listed as just a 1760, but had a VPN module and 96 MB DRAM which would make it the VPN/K9 Bundle)
    4 x WIC-1DSU-T1 (I bought an extra so that one of the routers can act as a DCE to the other 2)
    3 x MEM1700-128D (To kick them up to 192 MB)
    3 x WIC/VIC Blanks (To cover some empty slots)

    I spent $90 a while back on 3 x 2950 switches. I downloaded and installed the newest IOS they would take from Cisco (Cisco let's you download Switch IOS, but not Router IOS without SmartNet).

    Thanks for your replies, can anybody point in the right direction regarding WICs? How many would I need?
    Do I need them on both routers?
    Sorry to ask such noobie questions there's just so much to try and learn..

    What's your budget?

    Do you plan to go after CCNP and beyond?

    I would get either an 1841 or 2621XM

    I've been able to get 1841's for around $125 on eBay.

    Interestingly, I've been seeing the 2821 going for that or less. I've been trying to score one for under $100 [by bidding,] but no luck. They are available Buy It Now for $119 (with IOS 12.x) and up (with IOS 15.1 starts at $130). I just double checked on the 1841 (I would rather have a 2821) and there is one for $99 Buy It Now, but it doesn't say what version of IOS it has.

    The 2821s seem to be a bit more expensive in the UK but I'll keep searching..

    I have several 2811 routers and 3560 switches at work that I can use.

    Will this make a decent lab fir CCNA?

    I posted this question in the post pics of your lab, and I am now finding this thread to where it should have been posted.

    "In my lab I have a 2960 and 3550 switch, and I’m not sure if I should get the 3560 now or get a 2950 and call it a day until I truly need the 3560."

    Routers are 1841, 2801 and 2811.

    I have to get a couple of WIC cards and cables this weekend.


    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Well, I’m a little excited about this weekend. I will be adding to my rack, so I can get more involved with different setups.
    I have:
    Routers: 1841(Wic-1t), 2801(Wic-1t), 2811
    Switches: 2960 and 3550

    Getting this weekend:
    (4) Wic-1t
    (3) 2950 switches

    Again, any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated.

    here is my 2 cents....for the full CCNA course lab, u will need no more than two 2950 switch, one 2650XM router to practice the ROAS & one 2801 Router to practice NAT.....accesories wise, buy couple WIC-2T serial interface modules for both router so u can connect em together, couple pair of crossover cable & couple pair of straight-thru cable & a pair of DCE-DTE serial cable to connect the serial ports of the router......u should be good to go........just to avoid pain, try using packet tracer for all ur router lab except NAT.....it's lot easier & less time consuming.....better than GNS3....good luck

    Thanks omi2123!!I was going to buy (2) WIC-2T, but for now it was cheaper to get the 1T cards. I have just about all (or extra cables), except I will be picking up 2 more serial cables.I think I will have to endure the pain of using the lab instead of packet tracer, that was the main reason for me getting it. I do know what you mean, but I want to get into it this way.What is GNS3? ************NEVERMIND, I LOOKED UP GNS3****************

    2950s and 26XXs work for CCENT. Add a few 2960s for Etherchannel.. But for IPv6 practice, Packet Tracer will do
