HP Procurve

I have a procurve flat network, no vlans, all broadcast. How can I divide it into vlans or at least control the broadcast nature of this flat network. If I have to use Cisco layer 3 switch, which ones will you recommend, burget is very very tight. Please help. Thanks

Which models of Procurve switches do you have?

Google for the documentation for your switches to see how to VLAN them.

If they are 2500 series (oldish now) then download from HP

Why do you need to control the broadcast domain? Are people having issues? The days of broadcasts killing NICs/PCs may be long gone. These days, it's not something I would lose sleep over unless there was a known problem.

Building VLANs on Procurve switches is quite simple and possible on many switches even on older series like 2400/4000 and 2500.

All documentation and configuration examples can be found on

BTW In our company we're using no other switches than Procurve's. Great devices!
