Haha! I remember Braindumps. They really didn't help back when I was doing the A+ stuff so I just winged it after so long and passed with flying colors anyway. I've got a pretty good textbook (CCNA Guide to Networking) but I'll probably have to find a good book for labs. My simulator expired ( ) so I gotta get the real equipment now.

Got any suggestions for a router?

Just bought the 2950 24-port switch. Now it's time to look for a router. What do you guys suggest?

Just bought a 2503 and 2620 router from Ciscokits.com for $300. Not too bad, but I didn't pay for everything myself . Should be getting my equipment in about a week and a half.

Just got all of my equipment today . . . turns out I don't have a DB-9 port on my mobo!!! Oh well, I can order a $14 USB-to-DB9 adaptor and all will be good. So here come the Cisco noob questions I've been dying to ask.

1. On one of the routers, there is an "Aux", "Console" and "BRI" ports on the back. Now in my mind, I want to say that a router would service multiple items like PCs, other switches or other routers. So why no output ports? I figured out that routers can connect to each other through serial ports but how would you connect a switch to this router? My other router has additional ports for different connections, but that's not the only way is it?

2. I hooked up the router and I can do the "Express Setup" fairly easy. My (Linksys wireless) router's IP is 192.166.4.10, therefore I set the switch to 192.166.4.103. When I saved the configuration, it tries to connect to 192.166.4.103 but fails. I even renew my IP addresses but it keeps on getting 10.0.0.2 back instead (10.0.0.1 is the switches main IP address before you change it). What's going on? I guess I might have to wait until I get that adaptor.

2503 needs a transceiver.

Config the switch via console **** the GUI.
