now that I passed my CCNA, I would like to set up a LAB.
here is what I have
2x 2610 routers
1x 2501 router
1x access severs
now I would like to setup a full lab including frame relay , I would like you help
first question is do I have enough devices to make this happen.
2nd= I would like to start by creating frame relay first and then build up on that. unless if you have a better lab or suggestions.
CCNP has very little frame relay in it. It is more into redundancy technologies.
For the switching module, you will need 2x layer 3 (3550, 3560 or 3750) switches and I would recommend replacing the 2900s with at least 2950s.
For the routing module, you will need up to 5 routers. The 2610s will do fine. If the 2501 has 16mb ram/flash, you can place 12.3(26) on it and I think it will do BGP. It will do OSPF and should be fine.
There is a excellent lab book available from Cisco to show the setups for your labs.
