Just got my Lab kit for a great price on craigslist.

Come complete with 3x 1841 Routers and 1x 3550 switch and 2x 2950 switch

but the Routers come with WIC-2A/S

should i swap them out for WIC-1DSU-T1-V2? and how many do i need? just one per router?

    There's just like two commands to know for serial, is just remember them.
    and yes use the T1 cards. It's more modern. Just google how to set them up. That's what I did.

    so i should go ahead and order three Modules?

    and by setting them up you mean installing them inside the router and then configuring in the terminal?

    What you want to do is configure a point to point connection between your routers.
    So for instance, you will need to set clock speed, encapsulation etc the same way you would with Serial just a little different.


    here's some example config to be done on both side

    R1
    =====
    configure terminal
    interface Serial0/0
    ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
    service-module t1 timeslots 1-24
    service-module t1 linecode b8zs
    service-module t1 framing esf
    service-module t1 clock source internal
    no shutdown



    R2
    =====
    configure terminal
    interface Serial0/0
    ip address 192.168.1.2 255.255.255.0
    service-module t1 timeslots 1-24
    service-module t1 linecode b8zs
    service-module t1 framing esf
    service-module t1 clock source line
    no shutdown


    Now you can ping between them, and play with routing protocols etc. Also, you can get these cards for about $5 each. Id say buy one extra, I've had one dud out of 6 ordered. Theres also a thriving counterfeit market, so you might wanna google up how to tell them apart. always order from the us when on ebay.

    This isn't a place you will get any kind of help with something like that. The people here are the ones who spend countless hours actually learning topics because **** are a disservice to everyone. Just wait until you get crucified in an interview one day because they aren't going to ask the questions on the test, they're going to sit you down at a switch/router and say "config this with this protocol". Just something to think about....
