    I want to purchase 48 port 10/100 switch with 2 uplink gig/100 mbps ports.
    Can anybody suggest any perticular model ? My budget is approx 1,100 US$ .

    I called local vendor to get price of Cisco 2960 48-TT model. I got price = 2000 US$…Thats a lot. At other hand price of 3COM Stack 3 / 4250 series switch is for 1,000 US$ only. But i am not sure how effectively it can support VLAN thing. ANybody out thers to sugegst any switch which can full fill my requirement ? D-Link
    layer II switches supports VLAN ?

    How about NetGear? Is it easy to create VLAN’s in other switches than Cisco switches ? I never tried VLAN thing on other vendor specific switch before. :( Any comment ?

    Updated : Just went through technical specification of 4200 ( 50 port ) switch .
    Link : http://www.3com.com/other/pdfs/products/en_US/400770.pdf

    It says only gigabyte ports can work as trunk and create 1 VLAN group. Thats actually sad. So i’ll need to put all 48 users for specific group in that perticular switch .. :( How sad ……. Cisco switches are cool but too expensive..Damn Cisco !!!

    Thank you,
    Amey Abhyankar.
