If your going the one router option, I'd take a look at the 851w. Has all the features you need for CCNA track.

If you want to practice routing protocols and frame relay etc, you'll want to pick up another couple routers. You can get 2500 series routers cheap on ebay.

You'll also want to get a couple switches, I picked up 2924XLs and they do the job, but I would of preferred 2950s or better.

You'll need various cables, and other bits and pieces depending on what setup your going for.

Last piece of advice is, research the prices and what your buying before you spend your money. If you plan on doing CCNP one day, you might want to take that into account when choosing equipment.
