    Here is my lab. Some of which is coming still. What are some suggestions? Does anyone know of a lab book that lists the lab configurations and topology maps to help guide your studies?

    Yes..I am now officially broke as hell, but working on the actual hardware is light years better then working on sims. (I have the bosons CCNP sim which is good..but like I said the hardware is mucho bettero).

    Today the plan is to create a hub and spoke. 1 hub to 6 spokes to play with default routes. Also to play with ospf, eigrp, rip, rip2. If I have time I would like to dig into multiple area ospf.

    Help me obiwan you are my only hope...I need suggestions of a lab planner.

    Cisco changes the equipment configurations often. A book like that would quickly become obsolete.

    That being said, you don't need *exactly* the right hardware. As long as you keep a fairly updated IOS version, you'll have what you need to have for your studies.

    In other words... don't stress so much about the minor details. :)
