Is there a max number of switches I can connect to Linksys SD2008? Slow down issues...

I posted this originally on the Linksys board, but they directed my here...

I have a Linksys SD2008 main 8-port switch.  Connected to this, I have THREE 5-port switches from DLINK, each on its own SD2008 port.

1) My DSL provides 10 Mbps maximum.

2) On two of the DLINK switches, I can get 10 Mbps with speedtest.net

3) On third switch (connected last in time), I can only get about 2 Mbps.

4) If I disconnect one of the other two switches, the 3rd slow one now is 10 Mbps.

It seems like there can only be 2 switches connected to the SD2008.  Is this true?

If so - is there a new model of switch that I can connect 3 switches

Is there a max number of switches I can connect to Linksys SD200

Hi Derek, the is the SF/SG-100 series now.

There shouldn't be a "limit" per se. It's just a piece of hardware that doesn't have consideration for what connects to it.

Then I don't understand why when 2 switches are connected, both are at max speed.  But when three switches are connected, the third one is at 20% speed, but the other two are 100%.

Any idea where the issue could be?

I replaced the switch with a SG200-18 Port Smart Switch, and my problems magically went away.  Data rates are max at all 3 endpoint switches.  Not sure what the issue is with the Linksys SD2008?
