I have a home network and a test network for Cisco and MCSE training. I have one cable modem and 2 IP's for 2 routers. One each for each network. My question is I now have an ASA5505 that I want to incorporate into my networks for training and security. What is the best physical configuration for this and do I still need 2 IP's to separate the networks or can the ASA5505 do this.
For instance, should I have the ASA5505 after the modem and setup subnets in the ASA. I also have 3 2507's, a 1720, a 1751, a 2501, a 2514, 2 catalyst 2900's, and 2 catalyst 1900's. My goal is to keep my home network separate and use all the cisco equipment to train on and set up labs. Also, I want my MCSE pc's to be incorporated with the Cisco equipment. I have 4 2003 servers, 2 2000 boxes, 3 XP Pro boxes, a Vista Business machine with 2 virtual machine OS's, and a 2008 server.
