I am brand new to Administering a network. Here is my situation....
My work is installing a new piece of equipment that is located about 120' from one the main unmanaged switches on our network. I have one Cat6 network cable that is about 20 feet short from where it needs to reach. My though was to attach a netgear gs105 switch at this point and then run a cable from one of the outs to the new workstation. I was told tonight that this may slow down the network... is this true? Should I just buy some more cat6 and string it from the main switch all the way to the workstation?
Our network setup currently involves about 40 workstations -> 3 unmanaged switches -> 3 servers
Any help or guidance you can give me would be great.... I am just beginning to learn the world of networking
