    Yes, another CCNA lab request!

    I've been browsing eBay, and found these Cisco 2610 Routers for €25 (which would be around 20 £).

    Would these be adequate for learning the CCNA labs? As they have only one Ethernet port, which expansion modules would I need?

    Also, one of my colleagues is selling a couple of 2501/2503's but these are even older. He would sell me two for € 30...

    Thanks!

    Those models are fine, before you buy get the seller to send you the output of the "show version" to see what IOS and memory the things have, although if you contact IRP70 on ebay, say nice things about me, he might do you a better deal although shipping to deepest darkest Europe might cost more etc etc.....

    IOS is a bit old, but if it supports all of the commands and features for the CCNA then they will do the Job

    The RAM and Flash are good, it's what I use on the CCNA routers.
