    yes you do realy want 12.4. but you can upgrade a router with less to this if you obtain the ios. so if you purchase a router with 12.3 it should be possible to upgrade it.

    Is it big difference between 12.3 12.4 ? that we need to spend money for upgrade? Do you know how much it cost? do I need to pay for every device upgrade or just one :)

    Thank you for your help :)

    Get routers that are capable of running, or can be upgraded to, 12.4, and worry about getting the actual IOS images later.

    I've actually found the ready lab on ebay, and price is quite OK, I still need to consider this however they have mostly IOS 12.4 on all routers. I know that better is buy separate but on there are not to many, and the cost of posting each plus WIC-1t, cables, equals almost the same price like for ready.

    If you want the cheapest way to play with 12.4 cisco 831's run it and they are only about 30-40 bucks on ebay.
