Hello Everyone, i'm in the process of upgrading the IOS on all of my routers and switches. currently, on the routers, i've went from 12.3(8)T5 to 12.4(6)T. this seems to be working nicely after a couple of fires of course. now i want to upgrade my switches as well. currently we're running IOS version 12.1(22)ea2 on our 3550's. does anyone have any suggestions on a stable version of IOS for the CAT3550? any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
