I have both my network jacks bridging out to the switches here and communicating well. I have two USB hubs and eight USB Ethernet controllers on their way. The only downfall I am seeing is the running of Dynanips in Windows. Oh well have to give a little I guess. I have moved all my equipment into the basement now. My wife isn’t pregnant yet, but she is already nesting! Lost my office the other day…

I am looking forward to no cabling, being able to load multiple configs with ease. With all the 3640’s at work and the equipment here I am starting to see the light as far as getting the lab hardware up and going. Running four switches is a lot easier than running nine more routers on top of them for the Internetwork Expert topologies.

I am starting to feel a little more comfort with the material at hand for the written exam. Although I still feel I am far off, I am still getting closer. I picked up some more resources for MPLS, and hoping to pick up one more for some more QOS light reading if there is such a thing. The Netmaster written test is good for testing overall knowledge. I just hate going over practice test after practice test. I start to get mentally lazy and look to just memorize the answers instead of understanding why the answer is what it is. Hopefully soon…
