I have been trying to determine what I need to set up a lab at home for the CCNA. I am trying to get suggestions on equipment, does anyone have a good suggestion as to what I should purchase for a good basic lab?


Re: CCNA Lab

Dude !!!

If you can afford hardware equiptments switches routers , it is good.

But other option for CCNA is

Powerful Machine ( atleast 1 to 2 GB RAM )

40 GB disk space..powerful Xeon

and "DYNAMIPS" software..the best !!!!

You will be able to practice enough for CCNA..

Follow below link..
