Hello all,
brand new to the forums here. If I'm in the wrong area for this question please direct me to the right place. I have my first networking class next semester, for the first CCNA, and in preparation I bought a few pieces of gear.
so far I have:
2501 router
2950 switch
2 console cables

I don't have a background in networking at all. With all of that I am wondering what I can do to begin learning, rather... To all of you who are in the middle of this or near the end, what would be the two or three most important things to get a jump on? I'd be working with either those two pieces or with packet tracer (but I'd like to mess around with the physical ones... ya know...). I just want to get a jump start.
