I thought the network+ was vendor neutral? If the objectives require to configure something wouldn't we have to know cisco or juniper, etc.? Wouldn't that negate the vendor neutral?

    Been a long long time since I took Network+, but it was vendor neutral back in the day. OSI layers, etc

    What exactly do you mean by configure something? You can set up a soho wireless router and configure the appropriate settings in a lab sim and that's not gonna be specific to a certain vendor. Most soho routers are similar and very easy to set up

    Test is vendor neutral. It doesn't require any company specific knowledge, but it will def test basics for all devices commonly found in a network set up.

    Sometimes, you'll be studying on a random website, and see some Cisco questions. That's because people tend to group certs together and study them all at once. I know Skillset and many Quizlet tests do that. But, the actual test doesn't have those questions.

    My textbooks talk a bit about Windows, Linux, and bring up some Vendor specific protocols and theories- largely Cisco. I think it would be hard not to at least mention Cisco in the course of study. But, yes, vendor neautral and principles you can apply to a variety of situations.
