Strech, the owner of PacketLife is now offering lab time for free. From his site:

Lab gear is broken into multiple “device blocks” to allow for multiple users to use independent portions of the lab simultaneously. Users can reserve one, several, or all of these blocks at once (however, a user may only have one unexpired reservation at any given time).
Block A
* 1x Cisco 2811 (with 2x WIC-2T)
* 2x Cisco 1841 (with 1x WIC-2T)
* 1x Cisco Catalyst 3550-24
* 1x Cisco Catalyst 3550-24 (with Inline Power)
* 1x Cisco ASA 5505

Block B
* 1x Cisco 2811 (with 2x WIC-2T)
* 2x Cisco 1841 (with 1x WIC-2T)
* 1x Cisco Catalyst 3550-24
* 1x Cisco Catalyst 3550-24 (with Inline Power)

Support Gear
A few devices in the lab exist solely to support remote access or the physical topology. These are not offered for public access, but are listed here for anyone looking for ideas to set up his own lab.
* 1x Opengear CM4116 (console server)
* 1x Cisco 3725 (functions as a frame relay switch)
* 1x Cisco Catalyst 2950-24
* 2x APC AP7900 PDUs

This is a great lab, especially for free. All you have to do is sign up on his site (which is free, and should be done anyway), and schedule some lab time.
