I'm trying to create a routing/CCIE lab, and I know that the traditional method for setting this up is with a 2511 router and a couple OCTAL cables:
I was wondering whether there's a more updated method of doing this, maybe a network module for a 2600/2800 that actually terminates into RJ45s (instead of DB25s)? Anyone know whether a more modern setup is available?
The 2600/2800 series routers can use an NM-16A (16 port) or NM-32A (32 port) asynchronous network module. The setup still uses the octal cable.
