    Switch Needed

    Can someone please suggest an HP switch I can use that has an uplink so I plug in to either our 2324 or 4104gl ?
    I am fed up using an old D-link Hub. This only needs to have a few ports as it will sit on my test bench....

    100mbit or 1Gbit ports and how many?
    managed or unmanaged?

    How about a ProCurve 408? Nice and cheap

    The 1700-8 is OK and has a few management features (like VLANs, etc.)... the manageability leaves a little to be desired but for around £50 from Mandy at Oliis it is OK for 7 100Mbit ports and a gig uplink.

    Thanks the 408 looks just what I need - plug it in to port 8 and I should be away. Thanks for the advice...
