Unanswered Question
Jun 17th, 2007

Dear Net Pros,

I need to setup my own ccie lab to practice.I have 2 routers 7200vxr and 3845. Both are high end routers.

I need 4 more routers to make the complete LAB. I have 2 x 1720 routers and 1x 2620xm, 1x 1751 router. Please give me the options to upgrade these 4 rourters to IOS 12.4 and use it for the LAB setup.

Thanks in advance


I have this problem too.

Hi Swami,

Your 2 high end routers are good.

The 2 x 1720 might only be useful for backbone routers and for the 2620xm max out the dram and flash to 256mb and 48mb. The 1751 prefer with 128/32. This will allow you to do ipv6 in current lab.

If no ipv6 involved, all routers are good for lab.

Do refer to lab workbooks for more information. Download the free lab 1 to view the gears required.

Hope this helps.
