Yet another home lab question. I've seen several people suggest a 2950 switch for CCNA/CCNP study. What does a 2950 offer that a something like a 2924XL-EN does not?
What about a CATOS based switch like a 19xx - are they still needed?
As for routers, what is the advantage of the 26xx series over something like the 17xx series? I would like 2 FE ports, and the 17xx seem cheaper. Thanks.
