Yes.  Do you have the IOS you want to upgrade to?



And another question as i see uplink between 3500 switch does not support straight through cable, why

3500 is an old technology and doesn't support MDI/MDI-X.  The 3560, however, do.

If one of your switch supports MDI/MDI-X then you can use either crossover or straight-through.


Regarding your IOS, do you have a copy of the IOS yet?  The last IOS for the 3500 is WC17.  Take note that the 3500 is end-of-sale, end-of-support since 2006.
