1) It depends on the employer. Some might accept them, others might not. If I was hiring, I'd look at experience first. If you have a lot of real experience that's relevant to the job then I'd probably hire you if everything else was okay.
2) I've heard of Cisco router simulators but I don't know if they're free or not though.

1) There are several accredit schools out there that will allow you to get a degree. Saint Leo and Strayer are two that come to mind.
2) I don't know any free router sims for Cisco and whatnot, most you have to pay for.

Many schools have discovered they can make free money essentially with online courses. These are major accredited schools, I dont have any links handy as I am at work

Online degrees are definitely legit but you have to do the necessary checks to make sure you have not signed up for a dummy program (and there are many of them online today). You could check out the California College San Diego for their online degree program options. The college is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges of Technology (ACCSCT), which is listed as a nationally recognized accrediting agency by the United States Department of Education. This ensures that the institution is legit as well as confirms that your online degree will be accepted and recognized by your employers after you graduate.

I posted in another thread that I am attending Western Governors University online. Solid program that can also get your degree along with up to 11 certifications all at $3000 for a 6 month term (NO ADDITIONAL COSTS). Regionally accredited and supported by Microsoft and Sun.
Forget simulators...go with GNS-3...Dynagen/Dynamips router emulator and use the same IOSes that you will in the real world. You set up the components that are in the emulated hardware and all the commands that you would be able to use on live equipment will be there. All three products (GNS-3 is a GUI front-end to Dynamips that uses the Dynagen library) are free, open-source products. You have to supply the IOS though.
