I just passed my ICND 1 exam, and will start studying for ICND 2 as soon as the book arrives. I want to setup a home lab for some hands on experience... I got my hands on a couple Cisco 2900 series switches and a Cisco 2600 and a 1600 series routers. I know these have aged by now... and i probably need to upgrade even for practice.
Should I upgrade to 2950 switches? upgrade the routers? looks like the 2650 routers are going for $150 each on ebay... I would rather not spend $300 on routers. I read somewhere that I should buy a Frame Relay Switch ?? I already have a serial DCE/DTE cables. What else do I need?
