Choosing a lab router?

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
