No. You can buy it on ebay for around $180-$200 (128MB/32MB flash). You can try to make a best offer to the seller for around $230 since it's a 48MB flash or ask the seller to include WIC-1T card and one DCE/DTE DB-60 back-to-back crossover cable.

I hope will help.

You don't care about processor and memory too much since nothing you can do in your lab will tax the system. The most important thing is to have an IOS version (or ability to obtain one) with all the IP protocols you wan't to play with.

You might also want to look at used 800 series soho routers. I've seen some pretty tricked out 870's. If you search for the old 806s or 831s, they often came with images that supported a lot of protocols, then they got worried this was too useful to the customer and split to the 850 870 series.

Here's a 2620XM 96MB/32MB flash in ebay with a 100% positive feedback with complete accessories such as console cable, rack mount kits and AC cord from $170-$190. I think you can make a deal of $175 in it. Here's the link:

Another one with an aution start from $100.

I hope will help.
