Can we do intervlan routing on a Cisco Catalyst 3500XL ?

or it requires as minimum a 3550?

Hello Jorge,

you are exactly right, the 3500XL does not support inter-VLAN routing, you need a 3550 at a minimum. If you think about purchasing a Layer 3 switch, keep in mind though that the 3550 switches are End-of-Life/End-of-Sale, and that Cisco recommends 3560 and 3750 series switches:
