Physical Connection Best Practices

Hi;

I hope someone can help us.

We already have 4 SG300 52 ports Switches: (L2 mode)

We need to know the best way to connect the Switches and the router due to:

- Do not get excesive latency in the internal network.

- Do not get SPF problems.

- Do not get duplicated pings

- Get the maximum bandwith in the internal network.

- Get the best router link.

My thougts are:

Option 1:

Connect one uplink port to another uplink port at the next SW

Connect the other uplink port (of all Switches) to the internal SW port on the router/Firewall. (4 integrated ports 10/100)

Option 2

Connect two uplink ports to the two uplink ports at the next SW

Connect the number 1 port (of all Switches) to the internal SW port on the router/Firewall. (4 integrated ports 10/100)

Option 3 

Connect two uplink ports to the number 1 and 2 port at the next SW

Connect the uplink port (of all Switches) to the internal SW port on the router/Firewall. (4 integrated ports 10/100)

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Regards.
