SG300-28P and SG300-52 What's the difference?

Answered Question

Hi,


I have SG300-28P that I am using as layer-3 switch. Recently I ran in to SG300-52 switch and even though loading same firmware doesn't give me option to do layer-3 switching. For SG-300 I see options in GUI to create vlan interfaces under IP information section, while SG300-52 has IP information option only under the management section.


Please let me know if these are 2 different hardware types and L3 is not possible on SG300-52. If its possible to enable L3 switching on SG300-52, please advise what am I missing in the config.


Thanks in advance,

Sam

Hello Smunzani, there is no difference in the switches aside the obvious, one has POE and one has 52 ports vs 28 ports.


To enable the L3, you may console the switch and use the command

"set system mode router"

You may also set the system mode through the menu if you're using the older 1.0.0.27 firmware (which does not support the textview CLI)


If you don't have access to the console, you may log in to the GUI and go to SECURITY -> TCP/UDP SERVICES and enable telnet then telnet the switch as well.
