What are the major differences between 1810G-24 and 2510G -24?

I tried to compare those switches but performance look the same. Only diferences i saw are:
RS232 Console
Active cooling (FAN)
256kB more of switching buffer memory.

Hi Lucas,

The main difference between these products is that the 1810G is web-managed (Web ONLY) rather as opposed to fully-managed (CLI, SNMP, Web, Telnet, SSH).

A fully-managed switch gives you full control of the complete feature set whereas the web-managed switches have limited features.

Hope this helps,

You may find the following doc useful to help you compare/contrast LAN switch features.

The buffer memory is, of course, good if you have the switch filled up. In theory it should help the Store 'n Forward a little.

The 1810G-24 is silent (No FAN), but the 2510G-24 is certainly not loud at about 40dB.

The 1810G-24 comes with an AC Power adapter; I hate those! The 2510G-24 probably comes with a typical power cord like its big brother the 2510-48.

1810G-24 supports only:
Network Time
Prioritization
Dot 1Q VLAN Tagging
Link Aggregation
LLDP (Finds connected switches)


It is nothing more than a packet pusher... Well a network frames pusher ;-)

2510G-24:
All the same stuff and more:
RADIUS/TACACS+
802.1X (Port based control. I.e. Dynamic VLAN assignment)
Full TFTP, Telnet, and CLI
SSH & SSL management
SNMP all versions
IGMP (Great for multicasting workstations)


Overall, if you have doubt, I recommend the 2510G. It is still a very inexpensive switch... cheaper than the 2810G-24. In the same price rage of the older 2626 10/100 stuff.

Essentially the 2510G is almost the same as a 2810G. Both are better than the 1810G in that they have more features.


If you are never going to do VLAN, and you do not want to setup RADIUS authentication or anything like Port Security, and/or are uncomfortable with CLI the 1810G is a great performer for the price.

Much thanks for your answers.
I've got 4 switches procurve 1810g-24. There is one big difference, i see that 1810g cannot be stacked. 2510g manual says, that those can.
1810g are not immunized to loop over switches so if i link it and create second link (loop) without trunking switch after 10s goes crazy even if loop protection is on . It works but is a much traffic in looped interfaces, two ports with "trunk" works ok. Other issue i saw is speed autosensing not work properly. If i set FDX on ethernet card, switch does not recognize it and set the port to HDX, transmisssion is not work properly. When card and switch is set to auto or both set to 100FDX mode it works ok.

Hi Lucas

"Stacking" is only a method to access multiple switches using one (commander) IP address. Largely a redundant feature nowadays.

If you set port to auto, it's not autosensing but autonegotiating. An autonegotiating device can sniff the speed of the incoming data stream, but not the duplex. Hence you end up in Duplex Mismatch configuration, and transmission problems. Both ends of the link must be configured the same way - auto against auto, fixed against fixed.
