Hi, craing105

For CCNA? If so, it is quite enough for the CCNA lab as long as your routers can run 12.3 ip plus features such as rip,eigrp,ospf and nat. But the quantities of routers is a little bit short. I would suggest adding one more routers so that you can ptactice on the more challangeable labs.
