    Do you standardise on prosafe kit? If so you may want to consider the GS748TP - i've found it to be half as noisy as the GSM equivalent and it has built in PoE too.

    Only limiting factor so far is you cant manage it on anything other than the default VLAN1 but I know netgear are about to release a FW to overcome this.

    **EDIT** OK, so someone resurrected an old thread

    I don't know, I'm afraid - ours aren't stuck together, they're used separatly around the building. We have a random chap from Cisco coming in tomorrow, so I can ask him about LACP if you like.

    Recently installed a HP Procurve 24 port 2610-24 which was fanless. Its silent, supports VLANS, and is pretty good IMO. You could stack two together, and create a 2GB trunk on the first switch?

    If any of you want pricing on any Procurve, Netgear or any other brands of switch then get in touch as we can secure an education discount on most networking brands. Netgear for example currently have a 15% education discount running until the end of the month

    Many thanks
    Is this the end of July or end of August Dan?

    My mistake - its running until the end of August. They are also offering free site surveys so if any of you want Netgear to come along to your school for a site survey then get in touch

    Many thanks

    Ah ha! I actually feel like I've learned something useful today! Yes, the 1800-24G supports IEEE 802.3ad Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP), according to its specification sheet, anyway. This is useful to know as I'm going to need to use that in a while to get my distributed disk array working (er, after the plasterers have finished walling the switch and two servers into a cupboard, and assuming I can still find them under the dust and debris they are currently covered with...). Check out this other thread discussing why link aggregation doesn't work so well if you're trying to use all the bandwidth to just link two locations.

    The netgear JGS524 24 port switches have a fan but are pretty silent.

    The 48 port GS748T version is very loud though.
