Hello,

Can you please let me know if the 29XX or the 35XX can do layer 3 routing. Specifically the 3550 or 2950. Thanks

I have this problem too.

Can you tell me if any other switches can run layer 3 with the correct IOS. Thanks

2950 - No, it is layer 2 only.

3550 - yes this is a layer 3 switch. The base image supports static routing + RIP. The advanced image supports EIGRP/OSPF etc.
