Dell sonicwall NSA 2600

hi guys,

we have a firewall in place with 8 sonicpoints N
dispatched into our network (WiFi) we would like to upgrade our switches Netgear 10/100 to Gigabit.
any thoughts on which one is most compatible with our firewall? does it matter?  

thank you people.

I tried Cisco  ESW520 24ports.  the wireless wasn't working because of the VLAN features enabled on my NSA 2600 :-(

If you have vlans configured then you will need a managed switch that can do vlans.

ok, there are hundreds kind I was just wondering if someone else using the same firewall share his/her experience with his or her backbone equipment
Joshua HopkinsPresidentCommented:
We use them.  We have switches from extreme networks in place with them.  They have great features and are not that costly.

and what are "them" :-)
Joshua HopkinsPresidentCommented:
We have 4 clients setup with Soncwall NSA boxes.  2 of them have NSA 4600's, 1 has a NSA 3600, and 1 has a NSA 2600.  They all have a combination of Extreme Networks x350, x450, x460, and x480's for their core/edge switching
