Look for cheap/used Layer 3 Switch

    I'm helping a small college that has around 10 buildings connected via
    100FX Ethernet. All of the buildings collapse to a central hub and is
    a flat layer 2 network. I'm would like to segment each building with a
    VLAN/subnet using some used Layer 3 Cisco switches. I'm not sure if
    any of the 2900xl or 3512xl switches can perform inter-VLAN routing. I
    will have each building collapse to a layer 2 core and performing the
    routing on the layer 3 switches for cost purposes (can't afford a
    6513!!).

    If anyone can recommend an older model Cisco switch or router that can
    perform routing + 100FX and if affordable enough 1000Base SX I would
    appreciate it.

    Thank you,

    -Rick

    Thanks Brad, I'll check that out. I have setup a 3COM network in the
    past with Corebuilder 3500s performing the routing collapsed to a
    Corebuilder 9000 Layer 2 Core. From what I can see the Cisco product
    comparable to the 3COM Corebuilder 3500 series is a Catalyst 5505?
