Cisco Router and switch for home

Hello everyone,,

 

I am wondering what would be the best and inexpensive Cisco router and switch to use for my home. I want them to have the full current Cisco IOS CLI on it so I can practice and gain knowledge for my CCENT and beyond. I also want to use them for my home network so I would like to have gig ports and not fast ethernet. I don't require wifi function because I can turn my current router to AP mode and use that.

Does anyone have any suggestions for this?

Hi,

Anything that is within your budget. From Routers 2901 should be cheap enough, for switch 2960-s should be also enough. 

Please remember that 1 router and one switch might not be enough for studying such things like routing protocols, stp, vtp etc. so you should look towards full ios emulators like: Cisco Modeling Labs v2, Eve-Ng and GNS3.
