  1. Can someone give me some advice on how to set up a basic network using two 2600 routers and a 2900 Cisco switch ? Not as far as commands but do I need to use NAT ? I have Comcast as my ISP. Please help me !

    we always need nat.

    Most of the time the connections look like
    modem----router --- other devices and/or switchs --- still more devices
    There are a FEW cases where the modem needs to be set to BRIDGE mode, but
    don't go there unless it all fails.

    Keep it simple to start with [ modem---router---one system]

    see this for testing your ISP connection
