Any Good Network Simulators?


Whats up guys,

I was wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of a good Network Simulator to practice my routing and switching...I have my books but would be nice to actually test my skills and maybe one of you guys have experience with one that worked for you.

I always have my Virtualbox that I use for my OS's n stuff but didnt want to over complicate things by setting a complex network of virtual machines.

Anyway, any help or direction would be awesome. Thanks

Thanks for the info ill look more into others.....Was thinking about starting out with something like Packet Tracer and working up to GNS3 or something. Didnt think there were this many out there but will just have to get a hold of what I can and test em out.
