Looking for top notch network simulator that will support 6509's, 2950's, 2940's 3750's and 3560's. Any recomendations would be greatly appreciated.

Boson Netsim is good, I used that during my CCNA, served me well.

Those are switches, those are very complex to simulate, so you'll end up with some FLASH SIMULATOR that simulates command line, not the switch.

The best emulator ever is Dynamips:

But it supports only routers, not switches.

Still, you load REAL IOS (it's HW emulation), so it's all very realistic.

Hope this helps
