    I've accumulated way too much equipment over time. I'm hoping to sell off most everything except about 4-6 routers, 6 switches, 2 Servers, 4 Firewalls, and 6 Wireless APs.

    Bump! Anyone else got any good/updated pictures of their lab? Unfortunately I had to sell mine a while back.

    So, I have a lab at work. It's beyond excessive. I've used it for the CCNP and on-going CCIE, but I use it often to lab out real-world scenarios for work before we do things/change things (QoS, DMVPN, BFD, just to name a few).

    I don't even know what's all here at this point. Top router is a terminal server, which is great. All in all there's like 5 3945s, 2 3650s, 5 3560s (1 is just a lab gateway), 3 2811s, and a 3750. A phone, and a computer. I have firewalls I could add in (and probably will at some point).

    On wheels and fully mobile. When I'm labbing I can put it outside of my room so I can maintain silence

    I wish I didn't sell my rack a few years ago! Getting back into the CCNP studies and have some switches coming my way. Does anyone know of where I can get a decently priced network (wall mount) rack from? I'm looking for 12u or 16u.

    Default Packet Tracer

    F.Y.I,

    Packet Tracer is free and allows for more complex topologies. in addition it supports switches, routers, firewalls and wireless.

    IOS upgrades are available as well.

    What is Cisco Packet Tracer?

    Packet Tracer is a network simulator available from Cisco that provides a virtual lab environment for CCNA candidates. The network simulator enables the candidate to configure, verify and troubleshoot network designs based on Cisco devices. Packet Tracer simulates the same IOS software and configuration as the physical devices. All lab guides include Packet Tracer ready labs to configure, verify and troubleshoot.

    Download Packet Tracer

    Cisco now provides a link to download Packet Tracer that is available with the free one hour course on Packet Tracer fundamentals. The free course is available at the following link.

    I thought I'd bump this, I enjoy seeing labs:

    6 routers (3x-2610xm, 3x-1841), 6 switches (2x-2960, 2x-2950, 2x-3560), 1141 WAP, ASA 5505

    Mobile rack with 10-port rackable PDU. All craigslist finds, I think I'm under $500 total. The 1841's are the most recent, and actually running on IOS 15. I need more wic-2t's.





    Hoping to see what others have too!

    Damn these are some impressive sets of equipment.

    Any recs for a basic setup for a beginner? I just need 2 switches and 2 routers right? And they can be stacked. I was thinking of initially looking for each individual device on something like Craiglist, something old and cheap, but I feel like that would both take too long and be risky. I'm tempted to just get one of those ready made setups off of eBay or Amazon. Although I get that I'm losing out on a bit of experience in actively hunting down for my own equipment.

    Another big problem: I currently live in a very small studio apartment not much bigger than a dorm, which is already overcrowded with a bunch of stuff and a lot of other electronic equipment. I have quite limited space and I have numerous power strips/surge protectors that are all full of things (unrelated to networking), including four computers. In this confined space I feel like all this equipment is generating some excess heat, as it is always ridiculously hot even without any heating on, and even if it's cold outside. Buying all these routing devices I think will only add to that problem. But my lease ain't up for another four months. I do want to actually graduate from sims to working with real equipment now that I got my cert.

    I started with a kit off eBay, that's where my 2811's came from and the 2950's which dates me.

    My equipment definitely when on, creates some heat, as well as eats up some kWh's and my 3750 is LOUD.

    My suggestion to you is figure out what you want to do with it, meaning, if you want to play around with voice, you need POE switches, FXO, FXS cards, PVDMs for the routers and phones. Do you want to work with security, then you need an ASA, think through the licensing. In my purchases, I made tons of errors and had (hmmm..didn't realize that moments) but it's about the learning.

    You indicated that you have your certs, so do you really just want to ensure you know how to talk a someone through how to swap out a device or remove memory, then you just need to keep it simple and get a 2x-2811 routers (max out the memory), 2x-3560 switches. As your needs, desire and knowledge increase, you can expand. I'm struggling to recall what I can't do with my current setup which is the reason for my recommendation.

    Since you are buying multiple devices, consider how you're going to interact with them. The two options I'm familiar with are a terminal server (a dedicate router), or USB to Serial Cable adapters connected to a computer. I went with the USB to Serial route and have a computer, a Mac in my case, which allows for some additional possibilities. I can remote into the Mac connected to my rack, power on or off individual devices and basically do whatever remotely. The theoretically, I can integrate my physical gear and GNS3 but I never dug into that.
