Cisco 2610XM router dies

Cisco 2610XM router dies

Today ended up being a long day. My trusty little Cisco 2610XM router just died today. Leaving me for a while without access to the internet and my Exchange and Web Servers unable to talk to the outside world.  At first I thought that the power supply just failed, and having a variety of cisco routers available from my cisco lab I tried switching the power supply out.  It didn’t work however, and I found that the power supply of the...

Configuring the Cisco 2610XM router

Cisco Lab Kit

I decided to get a CCNA lab kit from Ciscokits.com. This will give me two routers and two switches to practice on. The other equipment I am getting (my ADSL WIC and a 2600 series Cisco router) will be for my live environment I’ll be testing on. More than likely at some point I’ll connect them all together through another switch. That way I can do testing on the test lab and have access to the internet through the test lab and...
