I was wondering if someone could recommend a few good places to get some lab equipment for purchase. I am studying for the CCNP and I would like to setup my own lab, but I need to make sure I get the right device models to the support appropriate IOS. I noticed that kakashi1973 posted a site that sells Cisco kits and it appears that at least one router running 12.4IOS such as the 2600XM or 3600 series is needed. so I guess I'm trying to determine the bare minimum I would need to set up the recommended labs in terms of equipment and IOS versions. Any recommendations on lab kits and IOS would be greatly appreciated. Also I've looked at some kits on networkhardware.com, but the basic and standard kits don't appear to support the 12.4 IOS. from what I've been reading 12.4 IOS is highly recommended/mandatory.
Thanks in Advance
