Hi all.

I work for a small company with 60 10/100 network points. I've been thinking, to get 2 Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series 48 port Switches and Daisy chain them with the gigabit copper ports. What are you guys' thoughts on this? Is this the correct way of doing it? I just want to use them as simple network switches.

For your purpose, yes this would work fine. I assume you are connecting them to a layer 3 device at some point for routing between the devices?

Hi mainesy,

I basically just want to link them together to be able to have those 60 points on one 'physical' network. would it be necessary then to get a layer3 device?
