Cisco 881 ISR for home use

Hey all,

Just picked up an 881 for free from a friend of mine thinking about setting it up for home use.

has anyone else done this and what do I need to look into/ where do I start with this?

I'm already working on a CCNA, I know it's not wireless but I'll be working on AAA next and I want to setup a few VPN's.
Currently enrolling into WGU's IT - Security Program. Working on LPIC (1,2,3) and CCNA (and S) as long term goals and preparing for the Security+ and A+ as short term goals.

    the main issues are the ports are only 10/100. and probably doesn't have enough memory to support newer ios.

    start by googling the installation manual. read it and set it up. document what you did.

    not sure how you intend to use it. but, putting a piece of equipment you know nothing about between your home equipment and the bad guys isn't a good idea. put it in a lab. learn it well first.
