Hi

Hi I'm a newbie  studying for CCNA.i'M TRYING TO BUILD A HOME LAB WITH 3 2501 AND A 2514  ROUTERS,  i ALSO HAVE A D-LINK 16 PORTFAST ETHERNET SWITCH. QUESTIONS

1. WILL THIS DLINK SWITCH WORK WITH MY CISCO ROUTERS?

2 IS THIS SUFFICIENT EQUIPMENT TO SEE ME THRU THE COURSE?

ANY INFORMATION AND POINTERS  WELCOME. i'M GOING IT ALONE STUDYING AT HOME,

THANKS

No because you won't be quizzed to configure DLINK switches.
