Setting up Network Correctly
Posted on 2010-11-17
Please excuse my ignorance but i do not have a great knowledge of networks.
This is my problem, I have the following equipment.
1.Cable broadband connectd to ZyXEL NBG-460N 802.11n Wireless Broadband Router
2. Cat 5e cable from router to Cisco SLM2008 8-Port Gigabit Smart Switch (situated in downstairs room)
3. Cat 5e cable from Cisco SLM2008 8-Port Gigabit Smart Switch to Linksys SLM2024 24-port 10/100/1000 Gigabit Smart Switch (situated in loft)
Now ive bought some hardware to see if I can set up hdmi over ip!!!!!!!
My first question is although I have a Cat5e cable from 8 port back to 24 port switch I have not set the connection, do I need to set up a static link?.
Secondly I need to set up a vlan on my switches I can go to a web view of the switch and set a number i.e vlan2 and then set each port to be a member of that vlan. Can the vlan be on the same port as the static link? or do i have to set up another port? and all ports go through the static link?.
Sorry if I havent been clear but hopefully someone can help
