We needed a layer 2/3 switch. Because of costs i didn't have a large budget so i ordered a 2948G-L3. The office need decent Layer 2 switching and route between 2 or 3 VLAN's, nothing crazy.
We haven't received this yet, but have started to do some researched and noticed that this switch is sort of an "odd ball".
1) It doesn't run VTP.
2) It uses Bridging.
3) Performance isn't that great.
Am I screwed? Can i run VTP? Can i use Vlans instead of putting interfaces in a bridge-group? Briding is a pain. I've also heard that this switch is really just a 48 port router...is this true. I need some reasurance that this will work out.
Thanks for you help.
