    Dieing Netgear Switch but which HP to replace it with?

    I have a cabinet with 2 netgear switches in it one is a 48port and one is a 24 port and i think the 24 port one is on its last legs shall we say. I want to replace it with a HP as i am trying to standardise the hardware we have and the last one we bought was a HP procurve as our core switch and it hasnt missed a beat, having just looked at the HP website theres lots on there and im a bit confused.

    All i need it to do is a have a fibre port on the front for the feed from server room. 24 ports, web management console, and most importantly not cost the earth. Can anyone suggest which model to go for and where to purchase it from.

    Procurve 2650 or newer equivalent. 48 10/100 ports 2 gigabit ports or they can take 2 GBICS for fiber or whatever you fancy.

    If you truly only want web management then:

    ProCurve Switch 1800-24G (J9028B)

    Approx £219

    You'll also need to buy the mini gbic for your fibre connection.

    The ProCurve 2624 is the 24 port equivalent of the ProCurve 2650 if you prefer.

    It's a 2626 you're after. I've just bought a stack of 'em.

    2626 because it has 24 10/100 ports and 2 10/100/1000 ports and 2 mini gbic ports but you can only use 2 10/100/1000's or 2 gbic's or a combination you cannot use all 4 at the same time.

    Ollis was the supplier. We bought a whole lot stuff though, so maybe that brought extra discount? I'm going to be in cable hell in about 3 weeks time ;-).

    Personally, I would say go with the 26xx series as it has the full management capabilities that are starting to be needed in schools and will definitely be needed in coming years.
