What is the best way to connect switch together (with 2960 switch)..cross or stright cable...up/down or normal port ?
WAN ----Router 1 --- -SW1 ---- SW2
SW3----SW4----SW5 (no vlan)---PC1
all switch has up,down and normal port except SW5
Does SW5 will support vlan if it is connect to a layer 2 switch (let s say sw5 is connected to port 5 of SW4 (and port 5 is VLAN 20 access mode...then trunk between SW3 and SW1))...is there any inheritance ?
Hope, this time, this post will be post on the forum.
Hi Loic the wire between switch 4 and 5 shouldn't make a difference in terms of rj45 so long as it is auto set (which by default it is). If you want switch 5 to be vlan 20, configure vlan 20 there and the port on switch 4 must also have vlan 20. So long as either switch is tag or untag, but both configuration matching it will work fine.
