Need lab recommendation

Endorsed Question

User Badges:

I want to get me CCNA Security certification and would like your suggestions for a home lab.  I DO NOT want to use GNS3.  Should I get an ASA too?  I learn from hands on and have about 900 to spend on a lab. 


Thank you for your ideas!

Michael


PS: I do not have any equipment yet.

Hi,

If you have a current CCNA RS lab it will be easier to do an upgrade to CCNA Security.

You'll need a couple of 1841s and 2950 or 2960 switches depending on your budget.
I always check out this site for lab setup/kits:

Personally, I've got an ASA 5505, few 1841s, an 8-port 3560 and 2960.
