LOL ... Good thing you said it was for your "Cisco lab" -- I was about to suggest a Nortel ARN as a good low priced option. Last brand I usually recommend to folks is Cisco. I for usually reccomend Juniper or Bay Networks(aka:Nortel) in that order. If they ask for a third choice, I tell 'em Riverstone . Cisco is overpriced underperforming junk, IMO.
