A few days ago I decided I wanted my CCENT and CCNA certificates. I've learned I need some lab time for my CCNA which involves setting up a cisco network lab of sorts.
I was looking at buying two cisco 1760 model routers and a Cisco 2950 Switch.
Do I need to buy software to go on the routers? I really don't want a simulator on a PC since I want hands on experince.
I am rather in the dark about this still. Any advice would really help.
