I am trying to set up a home lab. I have 2 x 2600 routers both with 2 x WIC-1T cards and a Cisco 1600 with a WIC-1T card and a 1721 with a Wic-1T card (but I might ba able to fir another).
Now for a home lab I want to test RIPv1 and V2 and OSPF, EIGRP, I think 3 routers will be enough. But do I need to 2 serial ports on each router for this, and if so, how many DCE/DTE crossover cables would I need?
Many thanks as I just want to get the equipment ready then start my CCNA study on this area.
