  • General Networking Question

    Hey guys! I got a job at this doctor's office fixing computers. One of the things they want me to do is network these two rooms that aren't networked yet. My question is this: is it possible to hook up a regular Ethernet cable to a switch and have it act like a switch, or will it not work considering the Ethernet cable comes from another switch?

    That should work just fine.
    If not, ust chop oiff the end and wire it up as a crossover cable.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

      You should be able to daisy chain switches. To a point. And yes it would be regular cable from an output on the main switch to the input of the secondary switch.
