Can a Cisco 2960S be stacked with a 3560 or 3750?

If possible how?

If not, why not?

A 3560 is a 3750 without stacking capabilities. – petrus Jul 5 '11 at 7:10

Answer: No


The important part: FlexStack is the name of the stacking technology used by the Cisco Catalyst 2960-S series of fixed Ethernet switches. FlexStack is specific to Cisco Catalyst 2960-S switches, and only Cisco Catalyst 2960-S Series Switches use FlexStack.

Longer Answer: No, because they use different stacking protocols and different physical cabling to do so.
