    Procurve 2600 series and 2510 series

    I was flicking through a network product catalogue today (as you do) and I came to the hp section (we use hp almost exclusively for network infrastructure here) and I saw the 2510 series and no mention of the 2600 series. I did a quick comparison on the hp website and I can't see much difference between the 2 except one is half the weight and fanless!

    Anyone know if the 2510 series is inferior to the 2600 series (apart from only having a 24 port model). I can't see anything missing that I normally use, vlans, radius mac auth, probably other bits.

    If 2510 is pretty much the same it could solve a problem for me where in the past someone stupidly wired about 24 points into the top of someones office and they won't have a noisy switch in there

    2510 has:

    - No Fan, making it run hotter (it's a smaller case too).
    - Higher switching latency, making it slower
    - Lower switching capacity and backplane bandwidth, making it even slower

    What's the price difference between a 2626 and a 2510?

    Price difference is very little. I have also found out it doesn't do mac based radius auth

    Are you sure? Config on my 2510 shows it as available

    E2510STF(config)# aaa port-access mac-based
    addr-format Set the MAC address format to be used in the RADIUS
    request message (default no-delimiter).
    [ethernet] PORT-LIST Manage MAC address based network authentication on the
    device port(s).

    I have 4, as I needed something small to replace the last of my hubs without the time or money to recable and run fibre.

    All seems to be fine, except I forgot that you can't run 1Gb over 90m+ of Cat 5 cable :P
