3560s and 3750s are the lowest end switches that run IOS that are L3 capable. They come with 10/100/1000 ports.

Don't quote me but I believe the Cisco linksys SRW's are the cheapest, although crappy at best if you ask me.


A solid proved model would be a 3750, like a  WS-C3750G-24T  which is a gig 24 port switch that allows Layer 3 ip routing.

Sorry, old school here.  To me Linksys still means home stuff and Cisco means business products.
