    Evening all,

    Just started CCNA using cbt nuggets and really enjoying it thus far!

    Quick question can anyone recommend a switch just for the CCNA exam?

    I have a couple of 800 series routers already

    Im looking on ebay dont want to spend too much if someone can give me a model ill get that one and do you suggest i get more than one?

    Thanks a lot

    i used a 2960xl if i remember rightly...... but to be honest, packet tracer is all you need for the ccna! or even GNS3 but thats a little overkill for the ccna!

    i did network fundamentals and routing protocols only with packet tracer. I understand everything perfect without real routers. For Lan switching, wireless and WAN i can't speak, i recently pick it up again at CCNA3.

    I don't want to invest in cisco-hardware for CCNA. I realize it's better to train with real material.. but i don't think it's necessary for CCNA.

    For home in general i think it's better to invest in 1 or 2 powerfull desktops (64-bit + much RAM), so that you can run a lot virtual machines. (for CCNA even a powerfull PC is not necessary).
