Hi there.

I have a Cisco Catalyst 3548XL Switch that connects all of network devices (client PCs, router, printers, etc). I'm adding a Cisco 3750 24-Port switch to add more capacity and add Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability. I wanted to check on how I should go about connecting these two switches so that all devices, no matter which switch they're connected to, can talk to each other.

Is it as easy as taking a cross over cable and connecting 1 port on the 3548 to the 3750?

Your input is appreciated.
