    Well with that being said ... I must be searching eBay all wrong... as I'm finding the 2106 1925.00+ and up... . So that will be coming off the list of things to get. Now the 4402 is a is only 2850.00+, naw the kids don't need new shoes... In a few years all of the pricing will come down. To back there is not a rent a lab set up... boo whoo. Life goes on though...study study study (nap)

    I have gotten feed back that with the proper laptop config GNS3 works well for doign labs. Which is something I have thought about. I have heard & read talks about Cisco purchasing them for Lab work.

    Mmm you can get a 4402 for under $3000 I guess. I nearly bought one cheaper than that but it was from China and I could just see a green tin box arriving. Those were £sterling so $1950 is about right. I  am supposed to be getting one via work but doesnt look like it will happen. If like I plan to do my CCIE Wireless I may buy or try to borrow a 402 from Cisco.

    I was going to suggest GNS3 but I like the real stuff. I spent quite a bit over Christmas to uppdate my lab and when I finished I had enough for a CCIE so I thought mmm, am I clever enough, well time will tell and it will be noce to show the guys that doubted my ability when I get my number.

     

    All I need is a 4402 and an ASA and my life will be complete. Might need another 1841 for private VLANs and an extra 3550 so  have 4 switches but they are not too dear. All in all I have an expensive year ahead with exams and study materials.

     

    Lab pic attached as I am quite please with it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

     

    But I definitely cant carry it around.

     

    Starting CCNP the end of this month, routing is my real weak area.

    "I think once you learn how networks are built and know how to design  them; networking is easy."

     

    And tensor calculus is a piece of cake.  You just need to know the underlying mathematics.

    Yeah then you have BGP, redistribution, I hevent even looked at MPLS. However I must say that I looked at some practice questions for CCIE and thought mm thats not toooo hard. I believe the main killer is the pressure, if you know your abilities the pressure wont get to you.

     

    Equally I see many many people asking for all the answers rather than going and trying to look for themselves and working hard. Try it and 90% of the time it wont work first time. Then you have to troubleshoot the scenario adn start learning.

     

    Packet captures are great and debugs. I love debugging controllers. The pleasure you get with a debug lwapp events enable watching the aps join, God Im o sad. Debug when iit works, debug when it doesnt work, then work out how to fix the differences.

    Anyone got anything on the CSA? I was looking in Chapter 15 reading it and which ver. of CCX it came out in. I see the Ver. CCX5 covers everything with the addition of MFP infrastructure and Client types. Come on Ciscoteers... you know the Musketteers did not use muskets... I own to much Cisco gear not to use it... LOL (off to eat).

     

     

    Nevermind I see where it is NOT in CCX, it requires an AP in local mode to act as a client REF: chapter 13, pg 253.

    CSA in the US is the Confederate States of America, a small group that demurred from Federal guidance 150 years ago and who were, after some discussion, persuaded to accept the guidance, after all.

     

    There's also the CSA as Cisco Security Agent, which is a PC- or laptop-based bit of software that protects that end device as part of the Cisco's Threat Detection and Mitigation setup; it's talked about in the CCDA books.

     

    I didn't see much about the CSA in Carroll's stuff, but I did see refs to the CCA, which in this context most likely is the Cisco Configuration Assistant, a GUI-based aid to configuring 526s.  Something Pete might have benefited from....
