I am trying to set up a home lab. I have 2 x 2600 routers both with 2 x WIC-1T cards and a Cisco 1600 with a WIC-1T card and a 1721 with a Wic-1T card (but I might ba able to fir another).
Now for a home lab I want to test RIPv1 and V2 and OSPF, EIGRP, I think 3 routers will be enough. But do I need to 2 serial ports on each router for this, and if so, how many DCE/DTE crossover cables would I need?
Many thanks as I just want to get the equipment ready then start my CCNA study on this area.
Sorry for the confusion it's just my teaccher said, you could have 1 DTE cable and connect it to a router and fix a DCE cable to the end of the DTE cable (to reverse it) and put in your other routers serial port?
1.) In your experience what lab scenarios can I create with have these 3 routers, I know I can test IP routing protocols like RIPv1 v2, OSPF etc, but I keep hearing about frame relay labs etc, what is this? Is it simulating the internet or something?
2.) And is it possible to simulate a VPN with my 2 cisco 2620 routers with 2 x WIC-1T cards or do I need 2 ethernet ports?
