    One question I need to know

    If you go from DSL modem to Router then Router to switch
    my question is then
    If I wanted to hook another mini linksys switch into the bigger switch would you run the cat5e cable from the first switch to a reg port in the second switch or would you run it to the uplink port and then hook the 1 or 2 computers into the reg ports of the second switch.??

    Obviously, run it to the uplink port if available.

    One more question John Will if you would be so kind.

    I haven't look yet but they have a dsl modem going to a Linksys router to a 24 port switch or 16 port I am not sure, so then would the router go to an uplink port on the first switch? She told me there wasn't an uplink port on the big switch but there should be shouldn't there? anyway if there is would the router go to the uplink on the first switch and then run a cable from any port on the 1st switch to the uplink on the second switch. ( and you would use a straight thru cable from router to switch and switch to switch?
