Course Description

20 hours of Real World Videos and Packet Tracer / GNS3 Labs and Challenges!
Learn things that you really need to know.

Right... so you want to work in networking? Great choice... wait a minute... what about your experience? Oh... you read two books and played with Packet Tracer? That might NOT be enough!

  • 20+ hours of Real Life Networking videos (HD) including troubleshooting of switches, routers and access points (wireless), creating a perfect network diagram, installing and managing monitoring tools (PRTG, Kiwi Syslog etc.), applying for a job as a Cisco Engineer, working with Cisco TAC Support...
  • NO boring and useless topics which you will not find in the real world!
  • GNS3 and Packet Tracer Labs and Challenges
  • Real World Questions and Quizzes

.

Why are your videos better than 1000+ similar offers online?

Simple! Because it is ALL about real life examples! No boring and useless topics, no marketing, no useless commands - labs, labs, troubleshooting exercises....

I cover things that you SHOULD know but you will struggle to find in a book: network diagrams, monitoring tools, racks, applying for a Cisco job etc.

.

I am studying towards CCENT/CCNA. Will it help me get my cert?

Of course! There are a lot of questions and labs on your CCNA exam so for sure my videos and labs will help you prepare for your exam. However, my project is more focused on real life examples so not all CCNA/CCNA Sec topics will be covered and some will be covered in more details (including some CCNP topics and Microsoft topics). That's a good thing as you can use my videos at ANY stage of your career in Networking!

What are the requirements?

  • This is a CCENT/CCNA Real World Labs Training so I assume you have a very good understanding of topics I cover (theory)
  • Understanding of the OSI model
  • Basic Router and Switch Configuration
  • Understanding of TCP/IP

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Have fun watching a REAL Cisco Engineer troubleshooting all issues LIVE - when things go wrong - I keep recording!
  • Apply CCENT and CCNA topics in real life situations
  • Learn how to troubleshoot REAL issues on routers, switches, access points and firewalls
  • Understand how a network REALLY works
  • Learn topics that are not in CCENT/CCNA but are important
  • Learn how to apply for a job as a Cisco Engineer
  • Get a lot of experience with labs in Packet Tracer and GNS3 (challenges)

What is the target audience?

  • Studying towards CCENT/CCNA or be certified already
  • Interested in real world networking examples
  • Interested in troubleshooting network devices
  • Studying for a Microsoft or Comptia exam and willing to learn more about Cisco Real World examples

What you get with this course?

Curriculum

Section 1: Introduction
19:23

So here we are! Let's discuss in general what this course is all about, how to take advantage of things we are going to cover. A good place to start your CCNA Real World Labs videos and training.

35:37

A very important video where I discuss and advise how you can gain some experience working and playing from home! Not a lot of money to be spent here either. Make sure you watch this video if you have never worked with Cisco.

16:17

Let's go beyond CCNA and do a failover test in a medium size network. IP SLA explained.

25:49

I am pretty sure you know Packet Tracer. Just in case I decided to record this video to make sure we are on the same page and you can take advantage of all labs we prepared for you. Basic router configuration in action again! Packet Tracer files to practice attached.

18:10

GNS3, how to set it up, how to use it. A simple lab similar to the one in Packet Tracer will be implemented. I will also show you when and how you can use GNS3 in the real world to troubleshoot and test network designs.

07:36

Let's check what I use for my lab and what devices I used to record this series! A hardware overview of Cisco switches, routers and firewalls for a home lab.

Section 2: Basic CCENT / CCNA topics
29:27

Our training is all about the real world. However, I created a few videos showing basic router/switch configuration to make sure we are on the same page. Do not worry - real life examples will be included! A great way to review CCNA topics using real life examples.

20:20

SSH, Upgrading an image and much more... Our training is all about the real world. However, I created a few videos showing basic router/switch configuration to make sure we are on the same page. Do not worry - real life examples will be included!

39:20

The best way to summarize your skills is to set up an edge router. In this video - a Cisco 877 - everything - from IP addresses to NAT - like in the real world.

29:43

Let's do it again - basic router config. The best way to summarize your skills is to set up an edge router. In this video - a brand new Cisco 881wg

8 questions

Do you know what you are doing? Let's see! A few questions that will help you understand what you have to know as a Cisco Engineer!

Section 3: Real World CCENT/CCNA Topics
14:46

L2 loop in action - it is fun to break things! Three switches, a PC and spanning tree... disabled. Guess what will happen? Check it!

29:11

Panic mode. The Internet is down. I will show you where to start and what can be an issue in a SOHO network. We will cover DNS/DHCP/ISP issues here.

21:36

I have been waiting for it for months! My Internet was down yesterday and of course I troubleshooted it all for you live!

24:24

So you are CCNA certified or almost ready for your exam? Let's take all your switching skills and apply them to some real life situations. We will talk about Spanning Tree, VTP, Mac Addresses, L2 Loops

23:20

Let's talk about dynamic routing protocols and static routes. I will show you a few tricks to make it easier for you to troubleshoot L3 issues. I will assume you know what OSPF/EIGRP/RIP and static routes are.

20:24

It is not enough to know how to configure a network device. You have to know how to create, design and undestand network diagrams. In this video I will show you how to start and use a free on line tool for your perfect designs. Basic CCNA and CCNP topologies will be discussed including some firewalls.

19:16

A flash card in my 877 failed. I decided to record a video for you to show you how I troubleshooted this issue. You will be surprised what I discovered here. Watch to find out!

15:53

It is easy to say now... 'If I had known...' - in these videos I will show you what you have to look at and where to be very, very careful.

24:14

Subnetting - Challenge!
08:04
12 pages

Subnetting examples, VLSM...

26:24

A very important concept that is not in CCNA but you have to know and understand. I will use 'no-ip' to show you how ddns works. Make sure you watch that one!

23:18

It is important to know remote support tools like Radmin, VNS, Teamviewer.

34:52

Is it a good idea to have a support contract with Cisco? Let's take a look at our options here and an example of a case I opened with Cisco regarding native vlans on my Access point

21:11

A lot of CCNA students struggle with this concept. We will spend two videos showing what a native vlan is, how and when to use and... break the rules - yes - break the rules :)

27:48

Time to break some rules again. Using a laptop to simulate a switch (trunk) and Wireshark to capture packets - we will see native vlans in action. A lot of fun sorting out issues. And I was sick at the time :)

24:10

Troubleshooting wireless... and Iperf as well!

26:17

Our network i huge now... let's talk about racks, cables, high-end Cisco devices.
