    Question How do you learn CCNA using home lab used hardware ?

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm planning to learn CISCO CCNA, does the following hardware is good enough to get to know basic IOS stuff ?

    2 x Cisco 2620 Routers
    2 x WS-C2924M-XL-EN
    2 x WIC-1T
    2 x DTE/DCE Serial Cables
    4 x Power Cables
    1 x Console Cable
    Cheers,

    Albert

    if you want the easy way of learning the IOS, commands and things then you could always try using Packet Tracer from Cisco if you are enrolled it is a free download and the online chapters interface with it to create practical sessions

    @albertwt Just for reference, how much would that kit set you back?

    You can use packetracer to further your knowledge and it's good for when you are away from your lab but nothing beats hands on with the actual hardware.

    The easiest way is to get your own Kit, and use Cisco CBT NUggets (which I Have). Packet Tracer is OK but some commands are missing especially when you start to get into VLAN's.

    Honestly the new CBT Nugets Rule!
