Connecting Multiple Switches

Last Modified: 2008-01-09
I have about six switches. They are in a rack, about 150 patch cables lead from the switches to the patch panel. One of the switches is connected to a router connected to a T-1.

What is the best way to connect these switches to one another? Should I just daisy chain them or should I have all the switches plugging into one single switch that the router is also plugged into? Or what?
