switches - 101
Posted on 2012-04-01
i just bought a switch... and I am uncertain .
my full prices linksys used to have an upload link... remember how there were two # 1 ports..
correct or not, i would plug my internet connection there.. and the other ports would then use this switch to connect to the net.
i just bought one on line from ebay... there is no uplink port.... my connection from the wall to any port seems to work and share the internet with other devices connected to any port.
i am just confused...
does this mean it shares all connections are there any distinction from one port to the next?
how does the flow of traffice travel in a switch?
i wish there were a brand.. unless we consider made in china the brand :)
