Hey Adam

It's never too late

I have actually looked at the HP Procurve switches, I have used them before
and a friend has one I can borrow.
It looks very similar to yours

I haven't tried the LACP mode yet, I was waiting on my cat5e and cat6 cables

For that price, that's very cheap for a HP gigabit sw. My friend said I
could borrow his and use it for testing.

Thanks for that information and the reply

Cheers Paul
