oh trust me I already know, I'm the first person to tell the people with promise to go to >>>/diy/ but this thread doesn't belong anywhere else

so I'm studying for my CCNA
I already bought a cisco catalyst 2950 off ebay for like $20 (pics incoming I did a few mods) but now I want a router to go with it but I can't break the bank because I'm a starving college student

what secondhand routers do you guys recommend for a beginner/CCNA cisco lab? What else should I get for my lab?

And now it works passively, save for the system state light staying amber all the time

Ooh boy, real topics.

Right now at work, I've been working on importing/writing compliance rules into SolarWinds.
In my case, they're the DISA STIGs, and it's sort of tedious work, but at least regex and I are buddies now.
Should cut our workload down to nothing when it comes time for inspection. Fixing violations on 200+ devices with a simple script push is an incredible feeling.

God-tier jerry-rigging skills.
Just be careful not to get btfo on the power supply.

Suggestions for a decent home lab server to run network virtualization?

From what I understand, GNS3/Virl want more cores as opposed to faster cores.
Would it be worth looking into a used server like this one?

Enlisted in the Air Force.

I work at one of the NOCs, my team is responsible for the network infrastructure of our data center/NOC (routers, firewalls, proxies, switches), and also managing the boundary suite at all the other bases.

I just happened to get luck of the draw with my assignment, many other people who enlisted with me got comparatively shitty assignments working T1 circuits or 25 year old crypto tech.
