Hello Sean,

You will need quite a lot of equipment to set up the CCNA class, some of which are the following:

  • Since this is a CCNA class and you intend to teach the students about CISCO, I will suggest that you get a CISCO router as opposed to the Linksys router that you have suggested.
  • You will also need a Cisco switch to connect the 20 computers on the network to the server.
  • You will for sure a server.
  • You will network cables and RJ45 connectors. For cables you will need both UTO and fiber.
  • You will need software called LAN school for teaching the student.
  • Software called packet tracer will be needed too.

Hope this helps.
