Hp Procurve 2610 Firmware DownloadFor the price these switches are a great value. With the lifetime warranty and lifetime support it can still be worthwhile to keep these going even if some of your 2600s may be reaching 10 years old. Installing the current firmware may mean you can keep these switches in service while integrating them with the latest security features you may be rolling out.
Hp Procurve 2610 Firmware UpgradeThe latest 2600 firmware posted on HP's website is H.10.83 from 2009. The current version as of this writing is H.10.108. The difference between the two versions is approximately 70 bug fixes. No new features were released though.
The latest 2610 firmware posted on HP's website is R.11.72, from 2011. The current version as of a couple months ago was R.11.87 (I wouldn't be surprised if there's been a new version or two since then. I should check). Not bad, you may think. But R.11.67 introduces a nasty 802.1x bug that affects the high ports on a 2610-48 switch, causing it to tell the client to endlessly reauthenticate. The problem isn't seen on the 2610-24 switches as it only affects ports over 25. R.11.72 was the first public firmware posting since R.11.67. The high port 802.1x issue is resolved in R.11.84. And if you're not running the current firmware you missing out on that fix and nearly 40 others.
