CCNA Routing & Switching Basic Lab Kit Information…

Designed with your budget in mind, our CCT and CCNA Routing & Switching Basic Lab Kit contains real equipment to learn on at an affordable price and has been updated for version 4.0 exams. The CCNA Routing & Switching Basic Lab Kit provides you with “hands-on” “real-world” experience unlike simulators and emulators. This kit includes what you need to learn and pass the new CCT 460-692 exam and CCNA R&S 200-125 and 200-301 exams.

Although you will not be able to do every lab in the studies, you will be able to do many of them and other labs that you create. PLUS, you will gain the skills to understand those technologies beyond this lab kit. If you are planning on going for your CCNA Collaboration badge or your CCNP certification once you have earned your CCNA, we recommend one of our CCNA R&S Advanced or higher Lab Kits so that you will not need to update the equipment as your progress.  You may need to add additional equipment for those certifications and other badges.

Something Important to think about…

Are you planning on going for your CCNA Collaboration badge or CCNP certification once you have earned your CCNA? If so, we recommend one of our CCNA R&S Advanced or higher lab kits so that you will NOT need to update the equipment as you progress.  You may need to add additional equipment for those certifications and other badges.

What you should avoid when buying a lab…

Above all, DO NOT get taken by the cheap Lab Kits offered by other companies on their websites, Amazon or eBay that only have one or two routers with one or two switches.  These cheap kits are NOT complete lab kits as claimed and they fall short when you start configuring labs. This is why we do not offer Lab Kits with less than three routers and three switches. In addition, make sure that your CCNA Routing & Switching Lab Kit has at least three 1800 or 2800 series of routers as the 2500 and 2600 series do not meet the current exam requirements. Of course you could buy your lab kit piece by piece off of eBay; but…

  • What would you get?
  • Will it be the right one or will you have to return it or resell it yourself?
  • What if it fails nine months down the road; who will be there for you?
  • What if you have a technical question; where will you get support?
Buy your CCNA Routing & Switching Basic Lab Kit from us and you will have none of these worries.

CCNA R&S Basic Additional Equipment Included:

Our CCNA Routing & Switching Basic Lab Kit comes with two HWIC-1DSU-T1 serial cards and two WIC-1T serial cards allowing you to gain knowledge of serial interfaces and Frame-Relay. (Frame Relay is no longer on the exam however, it’s still good to learn). Plenty of cables that include ten ethernet cables (5*5ft yellow cables & 5*5ft blue cables), three crossover cables (3ft gray cables), one serial crossover cables (5ft white cable),  one  DB60-DTE/DCE serial cable (3ft dark teal cable), one console cable (5ft light blue cable) and seven power cords (5ft black cables) to wire up all those ports in your labs.

The new exam will also cover wireless technologies and security.  To help you get started learning these technologies, we are including a Cisco Aironet 1242 802.11a/b/g Access Point (power supply included). This teaches you technologies such as AES encryption, WEP and WPA security and much more. You also get a powercube 3 power supply.

Additional configuration information:

*To configure the routers and switches, you need a computer with a DB9 serial port to use with the console cable.  However, most of today’s computers do not have this port.  Please note that when resetting a password on some Cisco devices, you need to press CTRL-BREAK when the unit is first powered on.  Many of the “cheap” USB to serial adapters do not pass this code, ours does! You can find it by clicking HERE!
