thanks for reading. So I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to real network engineering. I've started my ICND1 and we've long talked about connecting routers and switches etc etc etc... I understand all the protocols and how they work, but can you connect a decent layer 2 switch like the c2960s to a home router and have that work? I googled quite a bit and everyone kept showing examples of "Quick fix" solutions that involved super easy Layer 2 to Layer 3 on simple Linksys home products. I'm trying to learn how to interconnect a router to my switch and this is purely for learning purposes with the switch and IOS. I know how to do it already with ALL Cisco hardware, but is it possible with a simple E900 wireless router if someone were to need a simple lab on a budget?
Thank you for any feed back or advice.
