I have a Cisco 5520 firewall that I want to VLAN connect to a WLC and 5 AP's so I can separate into a inside corporate network and a guest network that will just have access to the Internet. I need a good PoE and layer 3 switch? Any recommenations? I will be connecting the switch and firewall via Gigabit Ethernet cable as I have no fiber module on the ASA.  


Thank you

You can use a 3560X.  Usually 3560 is cheaper then 3750X if you don't need stacking.


Have a look:

         Thank you for the advice on the 3560. We are good to go here and are proceeding with the purchase and implementation.

5 ports only?


Try an 8-port switch.  Do you want PoE or not, you can use the compact (fanless) switch here.
