$40/router to get IPv6?

 In 200-301 V1 CCC No Category on Purpose, News, Study Tips

Today I’m just tossing out a poll before to this audience before I offer it in another context. Here’s the setup. You’re going to buy some routers for the lab you’ll use to study for CCNA. You can buy some routers that do everything for CCNA except IPv6. Or… you can buy routers that do everything for CCNA including IPv6, but they’re $40 more each. And you plan to buy 3 routers. What will you do? Feel free to answer, and comment if you like.

I would get the IPV6 routers, I plan on continuing my Certs past CCNA and I will need them eventually


I would not buy any physical equipment for just a certification because you may not even pass it and then you would be stuck with equipment that is overkill for SOHO. There is a guy I know whose employer paid for a kit of 3 brand new routers and switches for him to train for the exam and he could not pass it and he had brand new enterprise level equipment he did not know how to configure after giving up.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
