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.
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.
