    Hey guys,

    It's payday :) and i was wondering if someone would be able to take a quick look at a CCNA Lab I am thinking of buying, and let me know their thoughts on what i would be getting.

    I am going to statrt studying for my CCNA Exam, so want to get a lab set up. To me this seems reasonable, but would just like some second opinions!

    They also do ADSL WIC's for £45, does this sound about right? Was planning on getting on so i could set the equipment up with an internet connection.

    Many Thanks
    Daniel

    EDIT: link would help! HERE

    I bought that setup, from the very same seller in fact, about a year ago and have been very pleased with it. Unfortunately due to other commitments my progress has not been quite as quick as expected however of course that's not the lab's fault - indeed the equipment has proven an extremely valuable tool to get some hands-on experience in a safe environment.

    Given I've yet to take/pass my CCNA (scheduled to take it next month) I'm perhaps not best placed to authoritatively comment on suitability etc, however as a year long user I cannot fault it.

    P.S. I do recall that mine was shipped without the serial cables (or were they the wrong type? I can't remember) but the seller sorted me out with new ones without hesitation. Oh, and the quality of packing was second-to-none - I'm still using the bubble wrap and polystyrene chippings for my own eBay sales even now!
