For your CCNA home lab you will have several considerations.
Do you intend to upgrade this lab as you go along for CCNA Voice or CCNP? Are you on a tight budget or is money no object? Are you limited for space in your house so you have to pack it all away each day?
I can’t cover every permutation here but I hope to give you some good advice so you can start out choosing the right equipment. Remember that for your equipment you will need some basics such as:
- Power cables
- Console cables and USB converter
- AUI to Ethernet converter
- Ethernet cables and crossover cable
- Serial DTE to DCE cables
- WAN modules for your routers (WICs)
