CCNA home lab

I am trying to study for my CCNA and bought some used equipment.  Two cisco 2611's and two 2950's.  My question is how do I connect the routers to my home verizon fios network?  Do I need a straight through cable and connect one to the lan on the fios router and the other to lets say fa0/1 on the cisco router?  The two 2950's would then be connected together via crossover cable?

Any direction would be great so I can start somewhere.

 

Thanks,

Hello,

You need to use straight through cables to connect router/computer to switch and crossover cables to connect the same kind of devices, such as router to router or switch to switch.
