I was hoping someone could give me some advice. Ive set up 8 computers to be able to learn on and experiment without the fear causing havoc on the LAN at work. Im would like to purchase a cisco router and switch to hook to to practice commands, see how things work etc etc.
I was looking at them on Ebay, and need some advice on what would be a good model number series to get that will support all the commands out now, upgrading the IOS etc. Right now I'm looking at the 2600 series routers. Any suggestions?
What about switches? Would something in the 2800 series provide me with something to learn on? Is that too old? Thanks a lot
