Re: Cisco Lab

I would say you need at least 4 routers and they have to be 2600 or better (make sure you can run rather recent versions of IOS)

I am thinking of getting a 1800 in the future as they have two fast ethernet interfaces

The biggest problem seems to be the 3550 catalyst, that is really expensive

You can see what they use in the CCIE lab in cisco CCIE page, problem is since you are just going to start CCNP by the time you have enough knowledge for CCIE you may need even newer equiptment

Also you need what I call the "boring" equiptment, the ISDN simulator for example that will cost a fair amount of cash depending on what you get
