The Cisco CCNA exam has a 50% failure rate. Most of the students fail on the notorious practical scenarios due to getting stuck configuring the labs or just running out of time. Most books feature very few hand on labs and no solutions leaving you confused and ill equipped come exam day.

This is where 101 Cisco CCNA Labs can help. Created by two Cisco experts we take you through all the technologies you need to know for the exam and the real world of internetworking. We set the challenge and then take you through the solution step-by-step showing you how to quickly and easily configure complex technologies.

101 labs for the Cisco CCNA Exams has been making the difference between a pass and fail for thousands of Cisco students since it was first released in 2009. Now completely revised and updated for the latest exam changes. 

This course will get you through the brand new CCNA 3.0 exam. We've broken it all down to match the new syllabus topics so you can take the CCNA or the ICND1 and ICND2:

  • 100-105 ICND1
  • 200-105 ICND2
  • 200-125 CCNA

We take you from beginner level to well beyond CCNA so you will be more than ready for the exam. All the lab challenges and solutions can be printed so you can practise anytime.

Who is the target audience?
  • Cisco CCNA students
  • Network engineers interested in Cisco configuration
  • Cisco Network Academy students

ICND1 - 1.0 Network Fundamentals
4 Lectures 23:43

Nice easy lab to start with. Adding IPv4 addresses to interfaces. You will be doing a lot of this!

Preview 08:15

Configuring IPv6 addresses is a simple process but you must remember to enable IPv6 on your router before you start.

083 - Configure, Verify and Troubleshoot IPv6 Addressing

IPv6 features several methods to make addressing interfaces a breeze. Here we cover address auto configuration as well as EUI 64 addressing.

084 - Configuring IPv6 Address Autoconfiguration

Packets do not move across the  network without ARP but many engineers don't really understand the process. Here we look into ARP and Proxy ARP.

085 - ARP and Proxy ARP
ICND1 - 2.0 LAN Switching Fundamentals
13 Lectures 01:21:37

Beginner lab looking at VLAN configuration.

Preview 07:19

VTP will make your life easier as a network admin. In this lesson we learn how to configure it.

003 - Configuring VTP Clients and Servers on Catalyst Switches

VTP transparent mode is a theory only subject in the CCNA but we've added it because it offers some useful features for you as a network admin.

Preview 01:36

This has dropped down from the CCNP SWITCH. Dynamic ports are a need-to-know subject for the exam.

010 - Setting Switch Ports to Dynamic

An exam requirement. How do you set the router or switch up to send all traffic to a network destination address?

016 - Configuring a Default Gateway for Routers and Switches

CDP is a very useful tool for network troubleshooting. It also presents a security risk so we'll look at how to disable it.

The first of two ways to add a static route to your routers.

042 - Configuring Static Routing via Interfaces

You can also configure a static route to send traffic to a next hop IP address so long as the network is connected.

043 - Configuring Static Routing via IP addresses

Did you know you can name a static route? Here's how.

044 - Configuring and Naming Static Routes

Also known as a default gateway. This is where you send traffic when there is no route in the routing table.

045 - Configuring Default Static Routes

This may or may not be in the exam. IPv6 is and static routing is so just to be on the safe side here you go.

051 - IPv6 Static Routing

Logging is part of the CCNA syllabus so we've added it with ACLs just in case.

031 - Logging ACL Matches

NAT can be tricky but you need to know it back to front.

032 - Configuring Static Network Address Translation

Dynamic NAT is used on most networks so you need to learn it well.

033 - Configuring Dynamic Network Address Translation

PAT configuration matches dynamic NAT closely but you need to add one command.

034 - Configuring interface-based Port Address Translation

This lab looks at how to use PAT with your pool of addresses.

037 - Configuring User Privileges on IOS Devices

More configuration commands to lock down router access for users.

038 - Configuring Command & Password Privilege Levels on Devices

Every router and switch has a banner message for legal reasons. Here's how to configure one.

Big exam subject. Here is how to set your router or switch up for SSH access.

041 - Configure SSH Access

A quick lab on logging to a syslog server.

I'm going to show you two ways to upgrade the Cisco IOS. The easiest option here is to use Packet Tracer unless you have a home lab and access to two IOS versions for your router.

091 - Cisco IOS Upgrade

You can also copy files using FTP (among other protocols). Here's how.

092 - Cisco IOS Upgrade Using FTP

Being able to recover a router when you have forgotten your enable password is a very useful skill. It's also an exam requirement so let's see how it's done.

093 - Configuring Etherchannels

802.1x is a new CCNA subject. Cisco are vague about whether you need to understand theory only or some hands on too so here's how to configure it. You will need a live switch, it won't work on Packet Tracer.

094 - Configuring 802.1x Authentication

Cisco have added more security topics into the CCNA exam. This is another one which has dropped in from the CCNP.

095 - Configure DHCP Snooping
ICND2 - 2.0 Routing Technologies

I worked in the police in the UK for 12 years as a patrol officer and detective. While I was in the job I helped teach the new e-mail system to other officers. I took a few IT exams and then left for a career in IT in June 2000.

I took a few more exams with vendors such as Cisco and Microsoft and got a job working for Cisco for two years. I then started an IT training company teaching Cisco and computer networking courses. I built the business until it had several offices in the UK and then sold it.

I now run a publishing business and several websites teaching IT related subjects. I've learned how to build a successful company and how to make it in the world of IT. I hope what I've learned helps you too.
