Hello - There is a 16 port switch and an 8 port switch in the company's ethernet network connecting 19 machines together. Both switches are 100Mb.
I have the 8 port switch connected to the uplink port of the 16 port switch.
Do the machines that are connected to the 8 port switch have to share 100Mb bandwith (the bandwidth available on one port?) between them when they are all active?
If they do, is it possible to give all the machines dedicated 100Mb bandwidth without buying a 24 port switch?
