    Hi I am new here.

    I am intending on taking the 640-801 exam.
    In preperation of gettign started with the course I have managed to blag the following:
    2 x Cisco 2501 Routers and
    2 x Cisco 3500 Catalyst Switches

    Although I have managed to blag this equipment for free I have no cables.

    I have been advised I can use a 60 pin DCE to DTE to connect the routers and configure a virtual circuit, however I also want to connect each switch to a router ( and then a pc to each switch)

    How do I connect the router and switch? Can this be doen directly ? Do I need a special cable?

    Please advise?

    chances are you will just need a standard UTP Cable for the switches to the routers with the addition of a tranciever for each router as i believe the 2500 series come with AUI ports not RJ45 ports, they shouldnt be more than a tenner
