The ccnp will be asking questions based on the 3550/3750 ios based 
Switches...2500 routers are good for frame switches and hub/spoke
You may want to pick up a 2611/2621 for sub-interfaces/dot1q...

Our ccie/ccnp lab in richardson consist of 4 2500/2600 routers for
Networking, 2 3550/3750 switches for ios based switching 1 adtran isdn
For the bcran test, ddr, etc...

Sorry I should be more specific.  I am looking for suggested equipment
(don't need suggestions on cabling or IOS versions).  I saw the FAQ
section which recommends 2500 routers....perhaps 2500 routers are too
old at this point?  I saw in the FAQ's a suggestion of a 2924XL switch,
is 1 enough?
