Just looking for some recommendations on home lab equipment to help study for the CCNP exams.
I'm looking to spend $500-$1000 on routers, it seems pretty do-able by going through Ebay. Any recommendations on router platforms? I've heard 2501 / 2520's are the best "bang for your buck".
Now for switches.. In a perfect world I'd find a 3550 on ebay for a decent price, but thats highly unlikely. How about a 2950-12? If I pick up 2 of these switches, what won't I be able to emulate? Inter-vlan routing?
Any help with this is very much appreciated.
