CCNP Route

webspongewebsponge Posts: 119Member
OK, so Ive started on the CCNP Route, using the official Cisco book and plenty of CBT nuggets,
I have GNS3 running, but there are so many different LAB books out there,

What is the recommendation of people here? I want a lab book that works with GNS3, and whats the best images to use? my 7201 and 3560 images dont seem to work properly.

Thank you..

    1841 is good for route as it will do BGP/EIGRP/OSPF out of the box.

    Yup! 3725s were good enough for the entire CCNP R&S and CCIP tracks, and I suspect for the CCIE R&S track as well. There are other devices that work and take fewer resources, but if your system can handle these, you're golden. These devices notably also support EtherSwitch modules, which means they can do double duty as switches in many topologies.

    Not to mention these guys are dirt cheap and everywhere. We have at least 50 lying around the lab.

    I'm using the latest 2651xm image, this allows for everything up to IPv6 Routing. I'd say you are on a good path though. Lab through the CBT videos and snag up the free lab book. I think there is a sticky somewhere around here that has it. All are good lab practice.
