Hi all,

I'm about to start studying for the CCNA Wireless exam (640-721), can
anyone recommend a good Cisco wireless router? I was thinking along the
lines of the 851W?

TIA, Jason

I am not familiar with the exam however, I would
be concerned that you might be better off with an
Access Point. This will very likely cost more.

Thanks for the advice. Not sure whether an access point is worth a purchase
as I've only scimmed through the sylabus, I think a wireless router would
be pretty much essential though as there is a lot of config which has to be
done through IOS.

My non-wireless Cisco 837 router seems to have stopped working so I'm using
an old 3Com for the time being but I'd really like to get a decent Cisco
SoHo router which I can use for the exam & future studies. I've still got
all my old 2600 & 2500 routers & a couple of 2950 switches from my CCNA
ICND studies.

If anyone has taken the CCNA Wireless exam & can make a recommendation I'd
really appreciate it?

Thanks, Jason
