if i have one switch chained to another switch, is that bad?
if not, what is the max number of chains before it starts causing issues?
i am asking because i am looking at buying a switch. if i get one that has only 2 gigabit ports, and the rest 10/100, can i connect another small 8-port gigabit switch to one of the 2 gigabit ports in order to expand the number of gigabit ports?
also, i am asking because at some point in the future we may need more ports and i'd like to know if i have the option of just buying a second switch to connect to the first one and thereby expanding the number of ports
