CCNA Lab Update

Got 2 new  1721 routers in the mail this weekend. So far I have learned how to configure interfaces, enable telnet access, set passwords, create banners, enable ssh and generate ssh keys and connect routers together using the WIC-1DSU-T1 cards and a T1 crossover cable.

I have also learned how to flash the IOS images onto the routers and have backed up all of the original images that came with each device before upgrading them all to IOS 12.4. A lot of the labs/studying could be completed using a router simulator like Packet Tracer or GNS3, but I find having the equipment sitting in front of me next to my desk is motivating and a constant reminder to study. I will probably use the Cisco Packet Tracer to do some of the studying.
