Using 79xx Phone PC access port to connect a Netgear 5 port switch

Unanswered Question

Cisco documentation indicates that on 79xx phones you can "Use the PC access port to connect a network device, such as a computer, to the phone".  What types of problems might be encountered if that device is a Netgear Fast Ethernet Unmanaged FS105 five port switch?  Is there any documentation indicating whether this "supported" or "not supported"?

I know that the speed on the devices connected to the Netgear will be cut to 10/100.  The devices connected to the Netgear would include - at a minimum - a computer and a Cisco wireless access point.  Other devices which might be connected could include additional computers and/or a printer.

The computer(s) would also need to access a distributed video stream daily.

We are running CallManager 8.6.2.21900-5 with phone types: 7940, 7941, 7945, 7965

Thanks for any insight you might be able to provide.

Will Cisco support you doing this? Not likely.

 

Will it work? I suppose, in theory, it should. Just don't complain if it doesn't.
