I recently passed my ICND1, I have CBT Nuggets training videos for ICND2. I am looking at purchasing equipment that will allow me to practice OSPF, EIGRP, etc.. basically all the ICND2 material.
I found some 2610 routers with 32mb DRam and 8MB Flash. Would this router be perfect for what I need or should I continue my search? They are extremely cheap and I could afford two for now, maybe an extra later. I also need to know what switches I need to practice STP, VTP, etc... Can I use my existing equipment in addition to the new equipment? Please help!
Right now I have a 2501 router and a 2916M-XL switch that I used to practice commands for my CCENT.
