    For $249 you could get a decent setup off ebay and work with the real stuff. Most simulators have limitations or are buggy. I think it's better, if you can afford it, to learn from the real stuff.

    Or if you have access to IOS, you can always go the GNS3 route. GNS3 Download

    Yea I agree, for $249 you pretty much have yourself a CCNA Lab with real equipment. Again either that or GNS3 if available would be my choice!

    Free CCNA Lab Workbook Section 1 – Getting Started with your Cisco Lab

    That's a site I've been working on for a couple weeks to provide a free online CCNA workbook based on GNS3.

    I manage to get a lab or two done a day with my busy schedule.
    There is no place like 127.0.0.1

    I don’t live in the great U S of A. Only in the Kingdom that is United. :)

    I was told by a CCNA Instructor to get Boson first and then go for the labs when I start my CCNP

    Some time back I was thinking of putting together a home lab and was quoted the following:

    CISCO2620 = £45.00
    CISCO2651XM = £125.00
    WS-C2950-24 £50.00
    WS-C2950-24 £50.00
    WIC-1T= £50.00
    WIC-1T = £50.00
    CAB--X21MT = £12.00 each

    What do u think?
