Wanted to get some suggestions for a home lab setup as I am preparing for my CCNA and CCDA. Future learning will probably include PIX/ASA as well.
Here is my question.
I just bought a PIX 501 off ebay for a good price. I am going to use this at home to learn and practice on.
I wanted to get some recommendations on a router to look for to hook up for my home connection as well.
I am a hands on type of guy, so I figure if I can setup a mini-cisco network at home (have to get some approval from the wife :) hehe ), that would go to great lengths in getting hands on experience. I know it is not the same as being in a larger environment, but still helps. Plus it is fun.
With that, what are some recommended routers to take a look at? Models?
I have a cable modem connection with a 12mb download and 1mb upload.
Just wanted to get started here. Once I get this in place, we shall see what happens next.
