Linking 2 switches

I have two SG200-50 switches.  They are located on separate floors and linked by one cat 5e cable.  If I pulled another cat 5e cable between the cabinets can I configure a LAG or something to achive a 2 MB link?

Yes it needs to be configured at both ends (or it does on Catalyst switches anyway).

If you need help with the setup there is a Small Business Forum where they deal with these switches so you could move this post to there -

Dear Rick,

               Yes, u can go with LAG and also it is called Etherchannel. It is a best way to go with this.

Etherchannel configuration guide example is follows:

Note: EtherChannel frame distribution uses a Cisco-proprietary hashing algorithm.

Thanks and regards,

Thank you Chandhuru.  Can you tell me if this must be configured on both switches?

Dear Rick,

               Sorry for delayed reply.

               As Jon said, have to configure in both end of switches.
