uplink what do you use it for
Posted on 2011-02-28
i purchased a Ezsx55w Ver 4.2 Linksys 5 port switch. i see there are 6 possible female recepticles for cat 5 in this switch. one is called uplink.... what would that port be used for.
I need to attach more Network devices in my private office. in my private office, there is one wall recepticle for cat 5 leading my computer. the other side of that wall recepticle leads to our regular switch for the entire office. when additing this switch in my private office, do i connect this switch to the uplink recepticle, or just any one of the regular 5 female recepticles of the switich?
