Gain an edge over others with this comprehensive, complete understanding, and hands-on course with Cisco's EIGRP routing protocol!

This course is designed to cover ALL the Cisco CCNA (ICND1 & ICND2) level EIGRP curriculum. However, this course is a more high-level course which will also introduce many of the topics related to the Cisco CCNP ROUTE curriculum! Students will also follow along using their LAB environment of choice to gain real-world, hands on experience!

Why do we teach both CCNA and CCNP Topics?

  1. Allows sutdents studying for the CCNA to have a much better understanding of all the KEY TOPICS
  2. Allows students looking to move into the industry, to know EIGRP in more detail, so they can answer interview question confidently, or perform in the workplace at a higher level.
  3. Allows students looking to prepare for their CCNP ROUTE exam an advantage as this material introduces many of the CCNP level topics relating to EIGRP
  4. Students that have not utilized or studied EIGRP that hold a valid CCNA, can use this course to prepare for their CCNP studes.

Presenting both CCNA and CCNP level material really allows students to have a solid conceptual understanding of EIGRP. This course breaks down the KEY IMPORTANT TOPICS so you UNDERSTAND them thoroughly!

★★★★★   Keith has an engaging teaching style that held my attention very well. I appreciated the practice subnetting questions and the 'cheat sheet' that he provides at the end. I would definitely recommend this course and this instructor - in fact I've already bought another course from him!

★★★★★  Great course and excellent teaching methodology!

★★★★★  Love the way Keith teaches. He phrases concepts in a manner that is easy to follow and understand!

★★★★★ Great course! Definitely will recommend this to others. If you like non dry material with good overall explanations and not just explanations written from a book, then take this course!

How YOU will LEARN!

Keith is an industry professional with many years of experience. He began his teaching in classroom environments through various consulting positions he has held. Keith loves interacting with students to make the learning not only valuable to the student, but fun as well. Keith will joke around, impersonate random characters, but his teaching method has quickly become a favorite.

This course requires you to be engaged! Keith will teach this course as if you were in an actual classroom environment!

He utilizes whiteboard styled teaching for most of the course just as if you were sitting in a classroom learning the same information. The course is not read from a script, which means you do not listen to Keith sound like a robot reading material and get bored - he will be speaking to you as if you are sitting in a room with him.(SO BE SURE TO SAY HI)

The course expects you to be engaged, taking notes and writing down information as he teaches it. Study the information he tells you is important for your exams! 

You will also be required to have a LAB environment, being physical or virtual to practice all of the configurations with me!

Curriculum For This Course
20 Lectures
Welcome to EIGRP!
1 Lecture 13:20

In this lecture, students will learn what they should have an understanding of before taking this course. Students will also learn about the topics in which we cover and various applications they can use to follow along building labs!

Preview 13:20
Understanding KEY EIGRP Topics
4 Lectures 59:32

In this lecture, students will learn the fundamentals of EIGRP and why it is so good. This lecture paints a good picture about EIGRP at a introduction level, which allows students to understand EIGRP completely as we move through the rest of this course.

Getting to know EIGRP

In this lecture, students learn the 3 different types of tables we use with EIGRP and some KEY TERMS you need to understand to be proficient with EIGRP. We do not cover every definition your CCNA Official Study Guide books cover for the pure fact that not all of those definitions are relevant. If you want to learn more about certain topics I mention, please use the books to learn more about the details.

EIGRP Tables and Terminology

In this section, students will learn about our Tables that EIGRP uses, and then learn more details relating to how we form neighbor relationships with other routers running EIGRP

EIGRP Neighborhood

In this lecture, students learn how we use multiple K-Values to calculate and determine the Cost of our Metric for our routers to use to elect Successors or Feasible Successors.

EIGRP Complex Metric/Cost Calculations
Configuring EIGRP
11 Lectures 02:03:12

In this lecture, Students will learn where to find the software needed to move forward in this course.

EIGRP Configuration Introduction

In this lecture, we will go over the topics we will be covering while building and implementing EIGRP on our LAB topology.

Preview 08:29

In this lecture, students will create the network topology step-by-step so when we move into configuring each of the EIGRP topics, everyone is on the same page and we can dive into configuring EIGRP!

Building our EIGRP Topology

In this lecture, students will learn how to get EIGRP up and running, and we will also learn about the two parts to our network command which is necessary to understand how we are communicating to other routers in different networks to create neighbor relationships.

Base EIGRP Configurations

This lecture sheds some more light on the Network Statement, or Network Command to help make more sense of it!

BONUS - Understanding Network Statement

In this lecture, students learn the difference between auto-summary and no auto-summary and why we like to use No Auto-Summary!

Auto Summary vs. No Auto Summary

In this lecture, we learn about Equal Load Balancing, and then tweak our bandwidth to alter that. Students will later learn how to utilize EIGRP's awesome UN-EQUAL LOAD BALANCING Feature!

Verification, Bandwidth & Delay Configurations

In this lecture, students learn how to implement the Variance command and multiplier to enable the unequal load balancing feature which EIGRP allows

EIGRP UNEQUAL Load Ballancing

This lecture assumes students have a general understanding of IPv4 subnetting which they will utilize to create summarized networks - allowing our routing tables to remain small!

Preview 12:23

This lecture introduces two concepts which we use as a Prevention/Security method on our routers to help prevent unwanted network devices connecting to our network to act maliciously. 

EIGRP Authentication & Passive Interface

EIGRP Hello & Dead Timers
BONUS - Intro to Redistribution
4 Lectures 50:41

This lecture goes of some of the basic information you need to have a general understanding of Route Redistribution and its purpose, so as we move forward in this BONUS section, it all makes sense!

Dont forget, this is a BONUS section - this is a CCNP topic. We are only going over the basics so you are introduced and familiar with it. We are not going to spend a tremendous amount of time on Route Redistribution for this course.

BONUS - Basic understanding of Redistribution

BONUS - Setting up our Labs

Welp, we cant really configure RIP if students dont know about it, so we will use this lecture to go over RIPv2 quickly for those of you who do not know about RIP or for those of you that already do, use it as a review! We will also go ahead and configure our redistribution router to utilize both protocols!

Hello everyone, Im Keith and I have been working in the IT industry for a little over 10 years now, working for both small companies and large fortune 500 companies. Working for a variety of companies in different industries has allowed me to gain a great insight on the important roles and responsibilities in the networking industry. Being in IT is a fun, but at times, challenging career. Technology is always evolving so it is important to stay well educated in many domains so you can grow with the technology and keep a strong, secure, and healthy network. 

I began teaching in 2015 in small classroom environments, for different consulting jobs I had. That has lead me to dive into the world of online education which I only hope grows so I can help educate those who are eager to learn the material to be successful in today's technologically advanced industries.
