DaisyChain network switches
Posted on 2009-04-29
I have one 1meg internet connection coming into one building. This is connected to a firewall, then to 4 24 port switches each having 2 1gig ports. From one of these switches I have a connection going down stairs to a 5 port switch and a connection from this 5 port to 4 24 port switches. From one of these switches I have a connection going to a classroom and want to connect a 24 port switch to this. This 24 port switch will be used for a computer lab. Will this make a difference to the speed of the internet or network? Would adding this 24 port switch be that much slower than just adding 24 more connections to that classroom?
