It is not a distance limitation of the switch, rather the cabling in the walls and ceiling. If the cable is Cat5 it can be up to 100M, but this can be drastically reduced with things like EM interference from fluorescent lights, kinks in cable and more. The switch auto detects the maximum reliable speed and this interference would cause it to drop to 10MBps. If you don't have a cable certifier (very expensive) you may want to consider simply replacing the cabling run with Cat6 following best installation practices.

Trying to Configure HP ProCurve 2524 24x10/100 Mbps Networking Switch as DHCP and creating a VLAN and connecting Linksys access points to that VLAN


This switch will not function as a DHCP server itself. You will need to have a DHCP server on the VLAN with the access points to give out IP's to the wireless users.

Hp 4108 vs 2524


It has to be either the cable or the transcievers. Do you have a spare pair you can try instead?

Don't forget that HP has free tech support at 866-myprocurve also. They are excellent.
