    which switch?

    Need a switch for a new building.
    3com superstack 3, 24 port switches are the usual throughout the school.
    I'm thinking this might be overkill as the new building will only have 4/6 pc's, 3 network projectors and possibly a wireless access point.
    So would I get away with something cheaper, that would still do the job, say 12port?

    cheers!

    I would always go for more than you currently need, if the budget will stretch. With a 12 port you only need to have another couple of devices for it to be full.

    I agree with Leco, go for more than you need. If you dont murphys law you will need the area ports.

    Do you manage your switches in school?
