I have one 3560 (24 ports) and two 2950 (48 ports) and try to them together. Should I connect the Switch like that


                    3560  ---  2950
                       |
                    2950

In case of using the Etherchannel to increase the througput, should I connect the cable as below :
                   3569 === 2950
                     ||
                   2950

You could even go so far as:

3569 === 2950
  ||       /
   2950

Then, configure Spanning Tree so that the small 2950 to 2950 link only comes up if one of the etherchannel links are down.

In the world of WAN, QoS is a pretty important topic for most, if not all, networks. Some WAN technologies have QoS mechanisms built in, but others, such as some L2 WAN's, don't have QoS control in the provider cloud.
