Need a better switch
Posted on 2006-10-19
We are a small non profit pubisher. We have 30 pc users plus 4 printers and 4 MAC users.
Our server is a new Dell running Windows 2003 with Exchange. We have newer pc's now running Windows XP and Outlook 2003. The server is speedy, the pc's are speedy but Outlook isn't. I suspect our network infrustructure is less than adequate. Our Netgear 24 port network switches are over 10 years old. I imagine switch technology has improved in 10 years. I don't buy switches often.
I was wondering if someone could tell me what features they look for in a switch. I understand there are managed and unmanaged switches .
May be you know of some web site links which might be helpful or suggest a make/model which might suffice.
Your thoughts, please.
