I've spent several hours reading about what kit people suggest for home labs for CCNA use, with no clear consensus amongst people's opinions. I believe I need:
(a) two switches capable of VLANs, trunking, VTP, 802.1q and ISL (b) two routers, each with one serial port and one ethernet RJ45 port, capabale of trunking, VTP, 802.1q and ISL (c) something for frame relay (not sure best approach) (d) something for ISDN
so, do I choose 2950 switches? what if I choose 2900 or 1900 switches? does that have any impact?
do I choose 2500 routers? which variants? I can't see any clear indication of which is most suitable for CCNA work.
how best to arrange the frame relay aspect?
no idea what to do about ISDN
I would be grateful for any suggestions of specific models or a current "best approach" list.
