Hi there! I hope someone can help me with the following question:

Unfortunately, I don't have access to real routers or switches. However, I have the Boson CCNA Simulator software v.6. I know they're in the process of upgrading the software so that it's compatible with the new CCNA exam, however, I just wondered whether the simulator software I have is adequate for the exam. Specifically, I'm worried about the types and models of routers and switches that my simulator does not support ie Switch 2960. Is there much of a difference between the 1900, 2950 and 2960 series of switches? If there is much of a difference, can you please direct me to a lab where I can access through the internet.

Many thanks.

There is not much difference.

The lab you have is adequate for CCNA.

(in my opinion)

Well, I would say that at CCNA level there is not too much difference between 2560 and 2960. However, the 1900 is a completely different animal altogether.

1900's shouldn't be on the exam and are ancient. The 2950 and 2960's should be just about the same command wise .
