    Hi
    I want to learn and prepare myself for CCNA. I gained an access to
    CISCO 1600 router and I have what is called "CISCO Networking Academy
    Program CD" (all legal and paid for). I want to learn it buy myself.
    From the Academy program I understood that the main goal is to config
    CISCO router! The real CISCO 1600 router can be access using Console
    terminal (Hyber terminal) and then I can communicate with the router
    and if I type (?) I will get all the commands. I am so overwhelmed and
    confused!!! I do not know what is the GOAL of all of this?? I do not
    know what is the >>"BIG PICTURE"<< what I am suppose to do and what I
    am going to learn.. is all that about "CONFIGURATION" of CISCO
    router?? if yes why ??
    I would appreciate very much if I can get a big picture so I can start
    doing thing but I know what I am doing rather than jump here and there
    without any knowledge what I am suppose to do.

    Thanks a lot.

    Yes - so you are competent at configuring Cisco routers.
    Maybe you need to start with some more basic network stuff? Do you know
    anything about TCP/IP, network topology, types of hardware and operating
    systems?
