I would appreciate any recommendations regarding CCNP SEC lab in general
I want to buy 2 r2811+2sw3350+ids 42XX +ASA5505
is that good enough for practicing in real lab
And what modules essential for the router?

    If you are not against using GNS3, you can do most of the things there besides the IPS and the switches.

    Thank you for your reply and sorry for late reply
    Gns3 is very good and I have implemented many labs on it but In some cases it is not stable and unpredictable that was very clear specially with ASA

    So buy an ASA?
    I assume you have R&S lab gear. If it can run advanced security (12.4T) or has a SEC PAK (15.X) you're good to go. There is no point buying 2811s for security only, as kreken says, most features are available in GNS3 running 12.4T images (DMVPN, getvpn for example), and you should have routers anyway for your CCIE.
